URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Gray ME
1048 AM EDT Sat Jul 20 2019

...DANGEROUS HEAT AND HUMIDITY THIS WEEKEND...
.Heat and humidity will plague New England this weekend.
Temperatures this afternoon will be in the mid to upper 90s with
some locations reaching 100. The most dangerous combination of
heat and humidity will be in southern New Hampshire where
temperatures will feel like 105 degrees or more. After a muggy
night, it will be hot again on Sunday. Although a cold front will
bring relief from the heat, it is not expected to arrive in time
to prevent another round of extreme heat and humidity on Sunday in
southern and coastal areas.

  stroke and heat exhaustion are possible for those spending
  significant amounts of time exposed to the heat.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible. Drink plenty of fluids...stay in an air-conditioned
room...stay out of the sun...and check up on relatives and
neighbors, especially older adults who live alone, to make sure
they are able to stay cool.

People who work or exercise outside or in hot environments, and
children attending summer camps or outdoor sports practices
should take extra precautions. When possible...reschedule
strenuous activities to early morning. 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.
