...Afternoon Heat Index Values 100 to 105 Degrees Monday...

The heat and humidity will continue across the region Monday.
Although the eclipse itself will provide some temporary relief
from the heat, heat index values will still reach at least the
upper 90s throughout the region after it ends. The worst
conditions will be over southeast Missouri, southern Illinois and
the Purchase Area of Kentucky where readings will range from 100
to 105 degrees. Isolated thunderstorms will be possible over
portions of southeast Missouri and southern Illinois in the
afternoon, so a few locations may receive some more significant
relief from the heat.

If you are planning to view the solar eclipse or participate in
other outdoor activities, then please bring along plenty of water
to keep hydrated. If you have any opportunity to do so, take
breaks in the shade or in an air conditioned building.

A cold front will bring storms through the region on Tuesday and
cooler temperatures for the remainder of the week.

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

High pressure continues to build into the region. This will bring
dry and increasingly hot weather to the region on Monday.

High temperatures Monday are expected to warm into the upper 80s
to the lower 90s. Afternoon dewpoints are expected to be in 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 6 PM local time.

With a large number of people expected to be outdoors 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 a long period of time on
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.
