  90s through Saturday.

* HEAT INDEX...With dewpoints rising well into the 70s,
  afternoon heat index readings will peak from 100 to 105
  degrees each day.

* IMPACTS...The effects of heat are cumulative, and worsen the
  longer a heat wave lasts. People without access to air
  conditioning, or those that are working or playing outdoors,
  are most likely to be impacted by the heat. Heat exhaustion or
  heat stroke are possible if work or play is too strenuous.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of heat and high humidity will create a
situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of
fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and
check up on relatives and neighbors.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a
matter of minutes.
