... Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 6 PM EDT
Thursday...

* heat index values... up to 100 degrees both this afternoon and
Thursday afternoon for a few hours.

* Temperatures... in the low to mid 90s this afternoon and Thursday
afternoon... however the humidity is expected to be higher on
Thursday. In addition... low temperatures tonight are forecast to
only drop into the upper 70s in the urban centers.

* Impacts... the combination of excessive heat and humidity is a
danger if proper precautions are not taken.

* Outlook... an extended period of 90 degree daytime temperatures
looks to occur for much of the region during the rest of this
week and into early next week. However... the humidity is
expected to be on the lower side Friday especially.

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.

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will create a dangerous situation
in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of fluids...
stay in an air-conditioned room... stay out of the sun... and check
up on relatives and neighbors.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
