The National Weather Service issues special heat advisory
July 16, 2013 PLYMOUTH VOICE.
The National Weather Service has issued a special heat advisory. A strong high-pressure system will present dangerously high temperatures combined with very humid conditions this week.
The forecast is calling for temperatures rising into the 90’s that will result in heat indexes around 100 degrees across southeast Michigan. There will be little overnight relief with humidity persisting and lows only falling to around 75.
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 ON RELATIVES AND NEIGHBORS. CHILDREN AND PETS SHOULD NEVER BE LEFT UNATTENDED IN VEHICLES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES.
