EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING IN EFFECT FROM 11 AM THURSDAY TO 10 PM CDT SATURDAY...

The National Weather Service in Saint Louis has issued a Heat Advisory, which is in effect from 11 AM Thursday to 10 PM CDT Saturday. The Excessive Heat Watch is no longer in effect.

* TIMING...Heat index values of 105-110 and higher are likely during the late morning through early evening Thursday through Saturday.

* HEAT INDEX VALUES...Up to 113 are expected due to temperature in the upper 90s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

* IMPACTS...The likely 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...

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures and high humidity will occur. This combination will create a situation in which heat-related illnesses are possible, especially for those living in un-air conditioned homes or apartments. People in the Advisory area are advised to avoid poorly ventilated areas and prolonged work in the sun. Also, keep plenty of liquids on hand
and try to stay in an air conditioned environment.
