    349 PM EDT Wed Jul 17 2019 /249 PM CDT Wed Jul 17 2019/


    ...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 2 PM EDT /1 PM CDT/
    THURSDAY TO 8 PM EDT /7 PM CDT/ SUNDAY...


    The National Weather Service in Louisville has issued an
    Excessive Heat Warning, which is in effect from 2 PM EDT /1 PM
    CDT/ Thursday to 8 PM EDT /7 PM CDT/ Sunday. The Excessive Heat
    Watch is no longer in effect.


    * TEMPERATURE...Heat indices ranging from 100 to as high as 110
    degrees will be possible each afternoon from Thursday into
    Sunday, with the highest heat indices along and west of I-65.


    * IMPACTS...Several 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.


    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.


    An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to 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 onrelatives and neighbors.

    ...EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON THURSDAY TO 7 PM CDT SUNDAY...


    The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued an Excessive Heat Warning, which is in effect from noon Thursday to 7 PM CDT Sunday. The Excessive Heat Watch is no longer in effect.


    * TEMPERATURE...Maximum afternoon heat index values from around 105 to 110 degrees are expected Thursday through Sunday.


    * IMPACTS...Dangerously high temperatures and humidity could quickly cause heat stress or heat stroke if precautions are not taken. The very young, the elderly, those without air conditioning, and those participating in strenuous outdoor activities will be the most susceptible. The effects will worsen with each successive day of the heat and humidity. Also, car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

    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. Heatstroke is an emergency...call 9 1 1.

    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.

    It’s going to be rough for golfers and fans at the Barbasol. I remember the temps got excessive like that at the PGA at Valhalla in Louisville one of the years they hosted it. I was there and I recall John Daly’s khaki pants were wet from his waist to halfway down his legs. Someone in attendance died from heat stroke and the PGA cut the price of bottled water in half the last two days of the tournament.
