...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 8 AM WEDNESDAY TO 10 PM
EDT SUNDAY...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued an
Excessive Heat Warning, which is in effect from 8 AM Wednesday to
10 PM EDT Sunday. The Excessive Heat Watch is no longer in
effect.

* HEAT INDEX VALUES...Up to 110 due to temperatures in the upper
  90s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

* TIMING...The highest Heat Index values will occur during the
  daytime, especially on Saturday. However, given how hot and
  oppressive this airmass will be, there will not be much relief
  at night.

* IMPACTS...The heat and humidity may cause heat stress during
  outdoor exertion or extended exposure.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Take extra precautions, if you work or spend time outside. When
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and
Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat
should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an
emergency, call 9 1 1.

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a DANGEROUS
SITUATION in which heat illnesses are likely. 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
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
