Heat Advisory

Statement as of 5:25 AM CDT on July 23, 2017

Expires 7:00 PM EDT on July 23, 2017


... Heat advisory in effect from noon today to 6 PM CDT...

The National Weather Service in Shreveport has reissued a heat
advisory, which is in effect from noon today to 6 PM CDT this
evening.

* Event... light surface winds and muggy mid 70 dew points will
combine with mid 90 degree afternoon heating to push the heat
index readings to 105 or slightly above.

* Timing... as air temperatures climb into the mid 90s for the
afternoon hours.

* Impact... heat related illnesses may become possible for those
outdoors, especially when out in direct sunshine.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Take extra precautions to prepare your body for any sort of work
or play outside today. Consider rescheduling exercise and
strenuous activities before or after the hot afternoon readings.
Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke
such as the chills or a sudden lack of perspiration. Heat stroke
is an emergency, call 9 1 1.

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected to continue for US. The heat and humidity combine to
create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible, because
cooling your body becomes more difficult when it is hot and
muggy. It is best to wear light weight and loose fitting
clothing. Drink plenty of fluids such as water before, during and
after exposure to the heat. When possible, seek an air-
conditioned space or at least the amount of time spent out of the
sun. And remember to check up on relatives, neighbors and pets.
