LOOKING AHEAD–HEAT WAVE BUILDING INTO THE AREA
Heat builds into the region for the end of the week into the weekend. Highs are expected to surge into the 90s for several days. Dew points will be in the 60s and 70s which will lead to high heat indices. It will feel like it’s in the upper 90s to mid-100s at times into the weekend. Take precautions and make sure you’re hydrating with water. Pets need to be brought indoors and if you can not do so, they MUST have shade and cool, fresh water regularly. Check the back seats when exiting vehicles as it would be fatal if you leave a child or pet in the vehicle. Check on elderly neighbors to make sure they have a way to stay cool, too.
