Special Statement
Issued: 4:53 AM CDT Aug. 18, 2017 – National Weather Service

... High heat index values expected today...

Very warm temperatures coupled with high humidity will produce
heat index values between 103 and 107 degrees. A heat advisory
may yet be required later today if heat index values of 108 or
higher become likely.

Whether or not heat advisories are issued, you need to protect
yourself and others from the impacts of the heat. If outside, stay
hydrated, take breaks in the shade as often as possible and limit
strenuous activities. If driving, never leave kids, pets or
anyone with limited mobility alone in a vehicle for even a few

even deadly levels. Remember to look before you lock! Know the
signs of heat stress and seek medical attention if you suspect
that you or someone else is experiencing heat illness.
