    ..HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM CDT MONDAY...


    * HEAT INDEX...Afternoon values will top out from 100 to 105
    degrees through Monday. Little relief is expected at night.


    * IMPACTS...The combination of hot temperatures and high
    humidity will lead to an increased risk of heat related stress
    and illness. The very young, the elderly, those without air
    conditioning, and those participating in strenuous outdoor
    activities will be the most susceptible. Also, car interiors
    can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.


    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. Make sure outdoor pets have
    plenty of shade and fresh water.

    ...HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM EDT THIS EVENING...


    * HEAT INDEX VALUES...Heat index values will be around 100
    degrees, due to temperatures in the lower 90s, and dewpoints in
    the lower 70s.


    * TIMING...Heat index values will be highest through 8 PM.


    * IMPACTS...Heat stroke, heat exhaustion and other heat related
    illnesses will be possible, especially if you spend a
    significant amount of time outdoors, or are involved in any
    strenuous outdoor activity.


    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...


    Reduce outdoor activities, especially from mid-morning through
    the afternoon. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing and
    drink plenty of water. If possible, spend more time in air
    conditioned or well ventilated places.


    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 911.

    I was just getting ready to complain that my car's air conditioner chose to go out on the hottest day of the year. But a friend of mine recharged the system and I'm now good to go...and I feel guilty because you always have to deal with this!

    I work outside for a living so I'm used to the heat and know how to hydrate properly. But I can't really remember anytime in recent years where it was this hot in mid June. I checked my phone weather app at 2:30 and it was 94 with a heat index of 105. We went ahead and decided to call it a day and will go in an hour early tomorrow.

    Thanks! Glad you got yours fixed! My car is just too old to fix it, wouldn't be cost effective.
