... Cool information that can help you beat the heat...

The National Weather Service will issue a heat advisory or an
excessive heat warning if certain criteria are met. A heat
advisory or warning normally means that air temperatures are
forecast to be much above normal. In the southern United States
during the Summer months... humidity levels can make it feel even
more oppressive. The heat index is the temperature the body feels
when the effects of heat (air temperature) and humidity are
combined. Air temperatures are taken in the shade... so heat index
values will be even higher when you are exposed to direct
sunlight.

For central Alabama a heat advisory is issued when air temperatures
are forecast to reach 100 degrees or higher... or if the heat index
is forecast to reach 105 degrees or higher. An excessive heat
warning is issued when air temperatures are forecast to reach 105
degrees or higher... or the heat index is forecast to reach 110
degrees or higher.

... Heat safety tips...

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids even if you do not feel
thirsty. Avoid drinks with caffeine or alcohol.

Wear loose-fitting... lightweight... light-colored clothing. Avoid
dark colors because they absorb the suns rays.

If you must work outdoors... take frequent breaks in shaded areas
or air conditioned buildings.

Never leave children or pets alone in vehicles.

Slow down... stay indoors and avoid strenuous exercise during the
hottest part of the day.

Check on family..friends and neighbors who do not have air
conditioning.
