Hot and Humid Conditions Expected Friday and Saturday


The National Weather Service in Cleveland has issued an Excessive
Heat Watch, which is in effect ‪from Friday afternoon‬ through ‪Saturday evening‬.

* TEMPERATURE…Heat indices ranging from around 105 to as high as 112 degrees will be possible both Friday and Saturday afternoons.

* IMPACTS…A couple days of heat indices near or above 105 degrees could have a cumulative impact on some individuals, especially those who engage in prolonged outdoor work or other activities. Also, car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes. Never leave pets, children, or the elderly unattended in parked vehicles. The extended period of high heat and humidity can worsen the effects of heat stress.
