Dangerously Hot Weather Sunday and Monday

Look for high temps to be among the hottest yet for 2011 over the next couple of days. Already at nearly 10:00 am CDT here  in Cookeville, TN the temperature is 87°. We expect to hit the middle 90's today and possibly the upper 90's on Monday. Heat index readings will reach into the triple digits both days as the humidity and dew point levels will be quite high.

Among the things you should do during this heatwave is to limit your activity out of doors as well as wear light-colored clothing, take frequent breaks, and drink plenty of non-carbonated AND non-alcoholic beverages. The best drink, of course, is water. If you must be outside, seek shaded areas whenever possible. Pay special attention to the very young and the elderly as they are more prone to heat-related illness. Finally, use plenty of sunscreen while participating in outdoor activities.
