Heat Advisory

Temperatures soared to the 90s and lower 100s in much of KELOLAND.  Not only did air temperature climb, but dew point temperatures also rose with many in the 70s.  The combined heat and humidity made it feel like temperatures where in the lower 100s.  The extended period of high heat and humidity prompted a heat advisory to be issued for much of KELOLAND.

Wearing light-weight and loose-fitting clothes is a good way to beat the heat as well as drinking plenty of water.  Also, try to keep outdoor activities early in the morning or late in the day when the heat may not be as bad.

While much of the summer has been cooler than usual, this type of heat might sneak up on people because they're not used to it.  This may lead to a higher risk of heat-related issues.

But the heat won't last long; cooler air will come in later this week.
