Heat advisory issued for this afternoon

Jul 29, 2011 7:07:00 AM - thestate.com
Forecasts of another hot afternoon in the Midlands has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a heat advisory for today.

The advisory is in effect from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. when temperatures in the central and southern Midlands are expected to surpass 100 with heat index values of between 105 and 109.

Experts in heat-related illnesses advise vulnerable people to stay in air conditioned spaces when possible, to drink plenty of non-alcoholic fluids and wear loose clothing.

If you must work outside, schedule strenuous activity in the cooler morning or evening hours and take frequent breaks in shaded or air-conditioned areas.

Heat exhaustion can lead to heat stroke, a medical emergency.
