... Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 8 PM CDT
Sunday...
... Dense fog advisory is cancelled...

The National Weather Service in Paducah has cancelled the dense
fog advisory for southeast Illinois and part of the pennyrile
region of west Kentucky.

However... the excessive heat warning for southern Illinois and
the heat advisory for the pennyrile region of west Kentucky
remains in effect until 8 PM CDT Sunday.

* For the excessive heat warning this weekend... the combination
of high temperatures in the mid to upper 90s will combine with
oppressive humidity to produce heat indices from 105 to 110
degrees.

* A heat index of 105 degrees or higher is considered the level
at which the body becomes more susceptible to heat exhaustion
and heat stroke.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous
situation in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of
fluids... stay in an air-conditioned room... stay out of the
sun... and check up on relatives and neighbors.

   Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.
When 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.

   To reduce risk during outdoor work... the occupational safety
and health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest
breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome
by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat
stroke is an emergency... call 9 1 1.
