...EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM WEDNESDAY MORNING
THROUGH FRIDAY EVENING...

* TEMPERATURE...READINGS ON WEDNESDAY WILL BE IN THE MID TO UPPER
90S WITH HEAT INDICES APPROACHING 105-110 DEGREES. THURSDAY AND
FRIDAY ARE EXPECTED TO BE THE HIGH IMPACT DAYS WHEN AFTERNOON
TEMPERATURES WILL CLIMB INTO THE UPPER 90S TO AROUND 100
DEGREES...YIELDING HEAT INDEX VALUES OF 110 DEGREES OR GREATER.

* WINDS...EACH DAY THERE WILL BE A GOOD SOUTHWEST BREEZE, HOWEVER
THIS BREEZE FALLS OFF OVERNIGHT MAKING IT FEEL MORE STIFLING.

* IMPACTS...THE LONGEVITY OF THE EVENT WILL RESULT IN A 
POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS SITUATION FOR SENSITIVE GROUPS... 
INCLUDING CHILDREN...THE ELDERLY...OR THOSE WITH MEDICAL 
CONDITIONS. LEAVING A CHILD OR PET IN AN ENCLOSED VEHICLE CAN 
BE DEADLY...EVEN FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. 

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

AN EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH MEANS THAT A PROLONGED PERIOD OF HOT
TEMPERATURES IS EXPECTED. THE COMBINATION OF HOT TEMPERATURES AND
HIGH HUMIDITY WILL COMBINE TO CREATE A DANGEROUS SITUATION IN
WHICH HEAT ILLNESSES ARE POSSIBLE. DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS... STAY
IN AN AIR-CONDITIONED ROOM... STAY OUT OF THE SUN... AND CHECK UP
ON RELATIVES AND NEIGHBORS.
