...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM MONDAY TO 8 PM EDT
TUESDAY...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a Heat
Advisory, which is in effect from 10 AM Monday to 8 PM EDT
Tuesday. The Excessive Heat Watch is no longer in effect.

* HEAT INDEX VALUES...Up to 103 due to temperatures in the mid
  90s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

* TIMING...The highest heat index values are expected Monday
  afternoon and again Tuesday afternoon. The heat and humidity
  may last into Wednesday.

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

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.

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.
