...HEAT INDEX VALUES 100 TO 105 TODAY...

The combination of high temperatures in the middle 90s and high
humidity will result in peak heat index readings from 100 to 105
this afternoon. The heat will intensify by Thursday with highs in
the middle to upper 90s and peak heat index values in excess of
105. Some relief from the oppressive heat is expected by Friday
and into the weekend.

Exercise caution if you must be outside for an extended period of
time. If you find that you`re becoming overheated, take a break
in air conditioning and drink plenty of water. The heat affects us
all differently, so listen to the warning signs your body may be
trying to send.
