...Heat Index Values 100 to 105 expected this afternoon...

Heat index values will reach at least 100 degrees this afternoon.
Some locations will likely experience heat indices around 105
degrees, mainly from southeast Missouri into southwest Illinois.
The eclipse will temporarily lower heat indices into the 90s. Heat
indices will rebound above 100 after the eclipse. Actual air
temperatures will top out in the lower 90s.

Heat index values at or above 100 degrees will likely persist
through 6 pm today.

If you are planning to be outside today for an extended period of
time, be sure to keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Look
for opportunities to get out of the heat from time to time, and
get into the shade or in an air conditioned building.

Keep watch on those persons who may be unaccustomed to the heat
and humidity.

...Hot and humid today...

Temperatures will rise quickly this morning leading up to the
solar eclipse. During the eclipse, temperatures may fall a couple
degrees, but will then rebound by late this afternoon into the
lower 90s. With expected humidity levels, the heat index just
before the eclipse could reach the mid 90s over western portions
of south-central Kentucky near the location of solar totality.
While the heat index may fall a couple degrees during the eclipse,
it will rise quickly again afterward, reaching the mid 90s across
much of central Kentucky and south-central Indiana, with upper
90s in some locations mainly along and west if Interstate 65 by
late afternoon.

With many people expected to be outdoors today for the eclipse,
the potential for heat related illness may increase. If you will
be outside for a long time today, drink plenty of water and find
opportunities to stay in the shade if possible.
