* TIMING...Through 7 pm CDT Monday.

* IMPACT...High heat index readings will increase the risk of

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.

A Heat Advisory is in effect today. Temperatures this afternoon
are expected to climb into the upper 90s to near 100 degrees
across the Four State Region, and when combined with the humidity,

time outdoors, and spend time in air conditioned facilities.
In addition, there will be a chance of afternoon and early evening

extended period of the forecast with the highest chances across
the eastern half of the Four State Region. Precipitation coverage
may pick up by late in the work week due to a disturbance moving
our way from the north and west.
