The National Weather Service in Burlington has issued a Heat

* HEAT INDEX VALUES…96 to 102 degrees, due to temperatures in
the lower to mid 90s, and dewpoints in the lower 70s.

* TIMING…The highest heat index values will occur between Noon
and 5 PM on Friday and Saturday.

* IMPACTS…The high heat index values pose a significant risk

Heat-related illnesses can occur very quickly. Pets are also
susceptible to heat illness. Additionally car interiors can
reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity
will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are
possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room,
stay out of the sun, and check in on relatives and neighbors.

possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible
and drink plenty of water.
