...Afternoon Heat Indices 100 to 105 Degrees Sunday and Monday...

High pressure aloft will build over the region through Monday.
This will lead to increasing heat and humidity across the Quad
State region. Southeast Missouri and southern Illinois will
experience the worst conditions with heat index values topping out
from 100 to 105 degrees each afternoon. Isolated showers and
thunderstorms may provide some relief for a few locations, but
most of this region will remain dry both days. Elsewhere, across
southwest Indiana and west Kentucky heat index values will top out
from 95 to 100 degrees each afternoon.

With large numbers of people expected to be outdoors Sunday
through Monday, the potential for heat related illness may
increase, especially for those not accustomed to the typical heat
and humidity of late August.

Be sure to drink plenty of water and find opportunities to keep
cool in the shade, when possible.

The heat should move out of the area later on Tuesday, as showers
and thunderstorms usher in cooler air for the middle of next week.

...HOT AND HUMID CONDITIONS EXPECTED ON MONDAY...

High pressure is expected to build into the region this afternoon
and tonight. This will bring dry and increasingly hot weather to
the region over the next couple of days.

High temperatures Sunday through Monday are expected to warm into
the upper 80s to the lower 90s. Relative humidity values will
increase throughout the day on Sunday and into Monday. Afternoon
dewpoints are expected rise into the mid and upper 60s which will
produce afternoon heat indices in the 95 to 100 degree range. The
highest heat indices are expected between 1 and 5 PM local time
each day.

With a large number of people expected to be outdoors this weekend
and on Monday due to the upcoming solar eclipse, the potential for
heat related illness may increase. This will be especially true
for those not accustomed to the typical heat and humidity of late
August in the Ohio Valley.

If you are planning to be outside for long periods of time on
Sunday and Monday, you should dress accordingly by wearing
lightweight and light colored clothing. be sure to drink plenty of
water and find opportunities to keep cool in the shade if
possible.

Stay tuned to NOAA All Hazards Weather Radio and your local media
for the latest weather conditions.

The officials at the Indiana Department of Environmental

20 for the following Indiana counties...

Jackson, Daviess, Greene, and Knox.

An Ozone Action Day means that a combination of the high
temperatures, light winds, and other factors, are expected to
produce conditions where high levels of ozone emissions may exceed
federally mandated standards.

Here are some recommended actions that the public can take to reduce
ozone forming emissions:

     * Walk, bike, carpool or use public transportation.
     * Avoid using the drive-through and combine errands into one trip.
     * Avoid refueling your vehicle or using gasoline-powered lawn
       equipment until after 7pm.
     * Turn off your engine when idling for more than 30 seconds.
     * Conserve energy by turning off lights or setting the air
       conditioner to 75 degrees or above.
