Staying Safe During the Heat

With high temperatures expected to climb well into 90s as we start a new work week—and heat index values soaring into the 100s by Tuesday—it’s important to take the proper precautions to beat the heat!

Hazy, hot and humid weather is not uncommon in the Stateline.  However, with the spike in temperatures coming so late in the summer season, many area school districts are dismissing students early.  To find out if your local school is on the early dismissal list, click HERE.

If you plan on being outside in the heat, make sure you stay hydrated and drink plenty of water!  When exercising or working outdoors, don’t overdo it.  Take plenty of breaks and look for shade if possible.  Check on your elderly relatives, friends, and neighbors.  Keep an eye on your kids and don’t leave them in the car; temperatures can be 20 degrees hotter in a closed vehicle.  And let’s not forget to keep our pets cool, either!

The heat will stick around beyond Tuesday, with highs topping out a degree or two on either side of 90.  By Labor Day weekend, temperatures and humidity levels will rise once again!
