TEMPERATURE…High temperatures in the mid 90s to around 100 degrees combined with dewpoints in the upper 60s to mid 70s would result in heat index values of 105 to 110 degrees each afternoon. Overnight low temperatures are expected to be in the mid to upper 70s.
IMPACTS…Prolonged exposure to heat and humidity may lead to heat-related illness if precautions are not taken.

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.
