...HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 1 PM TO 7 PM CDT MONDAY...

The National Weather Service in Twin Cities/Chanhassen has issued
a Heat Advisory, which is in effect from 1 PM to 7 PM CDT Monday.

* TEMPERATURE...Highs Monday will likely reach the mid 90s.
Humidity is expected to be higher than today, resulting in peak
heat indices in the upper 90s by afternoon.

* IMPACTS...Heat illnesses are possible for those active outdoors
or those susceptible to heat illnesses, such as children and
the elderly.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
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 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.
