...HEAT INDEX READINGS FROM 100 TO 105 EXPECTED TODAY...

Air temperatures this afternoon are expected to reach the lower
to mid 90s once again at most locations. This, combined with very
steamy humidity levels, could push heat index values up into the
100 to 105 range at many locations. In addition, the high heat
indices could last for several hours during the day.

Those with outdoor plans should take along plenty of water or non
alcoholic beverages to keep hydrated. Take frequent breaks from
activities and try to seek shade when possible. Also, make sure
outdoor pets have plenty of fresh water.

NEVER LEAVE KIDS OR PETS UNATTENDED IN VEHICLES. LOOK BEFORE YOU
LOCK!!

...HEAT INDEX ABOVE 100 DEGREES LIKELY THIS AFTERNOON...

As temperatures rise into the 90s today, the humid air mass will
result in heat index values of 100 to 105 degrees in much of
central and southeast Illinois.

If you have outdoor activities planned for today, be sure to take
precautions to guard against heat related illness. Drink plenty
of water, wear light weight light colored clothing, and take
frequent breaks in an air conditioned environment.
