Excessive Heat Watch
In fact, much of central portion of the United States is under some sort of heat-related watch, warning or advisory. The advisories stretch from Louisiana to the Canadian border. The core of the highest heat will remain just to our west, but we will see the hottest weather we've witnessed this year. We may see temperatures exceed 96°, which would be the hottest temperature we've seen since 2012. Of course, that was the summer we saw several 100-degree days. Maximum heat index values could exceed 110° in spots. As a result it is extremely important to remember to stay hydrated, check on children and the elderly, wear loose-fitting and light-colored clothing, and avoid direct sunlight.
