... The potential for dangerous heat impacts will increase across the
region through the weekend...

An upper level ridge of high pressure will strengthen over much of
the deep south today and will remain in place across our region
through the weekend. This feature will result in hot temperatures
across our local area through Sunday. High temperatures today will
range from the lower to mid 90s near the coast to the upper 90s to
near 100 degrees over inland portions of the region. High temperatures
Friday through Sunday will rise to the mid to upper 90s near the
coast and will range close to 100 degrees over much of the interior.

Humid conditions will persist across the region through the weekend...
and heat index values are expected to range from 104 to 107 each
afternoon... though some locations may experience heat indices between
108 and 110 degrees Friday through Sunday. A heat advisory may become
necessary across portions of the region Friday through the weekend.

Children... the elderly... and people with chronic ailments are usually
the first to suffer from the heat. Heat exhaustion... cramps or in
extreme cases heat stroke can result from prolonged exposure to these
conditions.

Persons working or playing sports outdoors from late morning through
the afternoon are urged to drink plenty of fluids... taking frequent
breaks to prevent overheating. Refrain from the Intake of caffeinated
and alcoholic beverages. Remember to check on relatives and neighbors...
especially the elderly to make sure they have adequate air conditioning.

Also... do not Forget about your pets. Pets should be brought
indoors... especially during the heat of the day. If pets must be
kept outdoors... provide shade and plenty of fresh water. Livestock
are also vulnerable.
