Heat Advisory Through Tuesday

NWS WX Story
crh.noaa.gov/

Hot and humid weather will continue this weekend for the Sioux Empire with temperatures  reaching into the 90s. Those temps combined with the humidity will push the heat index into the triple digits. Heat Advisories are in effect through Tuesday.

To help beat the heat here are some tips from the National Weather Service.

  • Increase your intake of non-alcoholic, non-carbonated, caffeine-free beverages.  
  • Wear clothing that is light in color and loose fitting.
  • Avoid the outdoors during extreme heat. Stay out of the sun if possible.
  • Postpone outdoor games and activities.
  • Eliminate strenuous activity such as running, biking and lawn care work when it heats up.
  • Eat fewer foods that increase metabolic activity/heat…Proteins for example.  Increased metabolic heat increases water loss.

Be proactive by checking on those most susceptible to heat related illnesses such as small children, the elderly, and those with medical conditions. Individuals left isolated without air conditioning has led to numerous deaths in recent heat waves. Don’t forget to double-check the backseat, and remember that pets are even more susceptible to the heat than humans!
