...HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM CDT MONDAY...

* TEMPERATURE...Upper 90s to around 104 degrees.

* HEAT INDEX...Around 105 to 110 degrees.

* IMPACTS...Heat exhaustion or heat stroke may occur if you are
  outside for extended periods of time this weekend.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Be sure to check on persons with health problems and the elderly,
as they are the most susceptible to heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Never leave young children or pets in an enclosed
vehicle, even for a short time, as temperatures can quickly rise
to life threatening levels.

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 911.
