Heat Advisory Issued Until Friday Night


The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for the WKVI listening area until Friday evening. It officially takes effect today at noon ET and continues until 8 tomorrow night, as temperatures climb into the low 90s and heat indexes hit the triple digit mark. Overnight lows will only drop into the low 70s tonight. A heat advisory means a combination of high temperatures and high humidity significantly increase the likelihood of heat related illness. If you have to be outside, drink plenty of water and take frequent breaks. Children and the elderly are especially susceptible to heatstroke and other conditions, so be sure to check on them and make sure they are well hydrated. Likewise, see that outdoor pets have ample water and shade. If possible, stay inside in the air conditioning until this weather breaks.
