Heat Advisory

URGENT - WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service La Crosse WI
241 PM CDT Thu Jul 18 2019

...Dangerous Heat Expected through Saturday...

.Cloud cover continues to provide relief from the excessive heat
early this afternoon, but if clouds break later this afternoon,
temperatures will quickly climb into the upper 80s and lower 90s.

Dangerous heat is expected from Friday into Saturday. Friday looks
to be the hottest day, with highs in the mid to upper 90s and heat
index values from 100 to 110. Dangerous heat will reach as far
north as north central Wisconsin on Friday, so the heat advisory
has been expanded to include Clark County. The highest
temperatures and heat indices are expected across northeast Iowa,
far southwest Wisconsin, and in some river valley locations.

Exposure to heat for multiple days is very dangerous, especially
for the elderly, children, and pets. Be sure to stay hydrated and
limit outdoor activities. Continue to monitor the latest
forecasts, especially if you have outdoor plans.
