Potentially Dangerous Heat Through This 4th Of July Holiday Week
Plan on a heat wave to build into the Upper Mississippi River Valley region for this 4th of July holiday week. High temperatures from Monday through Friday are forecast in the 90s, with potential for some locations to hit 100 degrees. In addition, the humidity will climb, causing heat indicies to approach or exceed 100 degrees each day. Note that lows will also be warm, mainly in the 70s. It is becoming increasingly likely that heat advisories will be needed, especially from Tuesday through Friday!! With many venturing out over the holiday period, this prolonged period of heat will have impacts. The threat for heat related illness will increase as the week wears on. •Campers should be prepared for the dangers of the heat. Stay hydrated with water, have a cool shelter for refuge from the hottest parts of the day, and save strenuous activities for the early and later parts of the day. Be careful with campfires...the area is very dry.•Young children and the elderly will be especially susceptible to the heat. Make sure they stay cool in air conditioned areas and avoid the hotter parts of the day.•4th of July festivities: crowds will add to the heat. Stay hydrated with plenty of water. Planning ahead for the heat now can limit the risk, or prevent, heat related illness.
Be smart and safe this week - enjoy the holiday
I think its hotter to the west than it is the closer you get to Lake Michigan.
I hate sitting in the house all day. I wanted to get outside but then again...
I don't really mind the heat...but I'm not going for a bike ride.
I notice you're inside too :p
It had to be a little cooler by the lake.
You just weren't drunk enough.
