...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.

may be highest along the coast with higher humidity. A heat
advisory may yet be required later today if heat index values of
108 or higher become likely. Heat index values should be lower
Monday and Tuesday with increased cloud cover due to shower and
thunderstorm activity. This may limit high temperatures to the mid
90s instead of the upper 90s.

Whether or not heat advisories are issued, you need to protect
yourself and others from the impacts of the heat. If outside, stay
hydrated, take breaks in the shade as often as possible and limit
strenuous activities. If driving, never leave kids, pets or
anyone with limited mobility alone in a vehicle for even a few
minutes as rapidly rising temperatures could reach dangerous or
even deadly levels. Remember to look before you lock! Know the

that you or someone else is experiencing heat illness.
