* HEAT INDEX VALUES...ranging from around 105 to as high as 110
both Friday and Saturday afternoons, due to temperatures in the
mid 90s, and dewpoints in the mid 70s.
* TIMING...Friday afternoon through Saturday evening. The highest
heat index values will occur late afternoon into the early
evening but little relief will occur overnight with low
temperatures only dipping to the 70s to nearly 80 degrees.
* IMPACTS...A couple days of heat indices near or above 105
degrees could have a cumulative impact on some individuals,
especially those who engage in prolonged outdoor work or other
activities. Also, car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in
a matter of minutes. Never leave pets, children, or the elderly
unattended in parked vehicles. The extended period of high heat
and humidity can worsen the effects of heat stress.

weather is expected. High temperatures and high humidity will
combine to create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses
are possible. Monitor the latest forecast and prepare for
possible excessive heat warnings.
