..AFTERNOON HEAT INDICES 100 TO 105 DEGREES SUNDAY AND MONDAY
 
 
HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL BUILD OVER THE REGION THROUGH MONDAY.  
THIS WILL LEAD TO INCREASING HEAT AND HUMIDITY ACROSS THE QUAD  
STATE REGION. SOUTHEAST MISSOURI AND SOUTHERN ILLINOIS WILL  
EXPERIENCE THE WORST CONDITIONS WITH HEAT INDEX VALUES TOPPING OUT  
FROM 100 TO 105 DEGREES EACH AFTERNOON. ISOLATED SHOWERS AND  
THUNDERSTORMS MAY PROVIDE SOME RELIEF FOR A FEW LOCATIONS, BUT  
MOST OF THIS REGION WILL REMAIN DRY BOTH DAYS. ELSEWHERE, ACROSS  
SOUTHWEST INDIANA AND WEST KENTUCKY HEAT INDEX VALUES WILL TOP OUT  
FROM 95 TO 100 DEGREES EACH AFTERNOON.  
 
WITH LARGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE EXPECTED TO BE OUTDOORS SUNDAY  
THROUGH MONDAY, THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAT RELATED ILLNESS MAY  
INCREASE, ESPECIALLY FOR THOSE NOT ACCUSTOMED TO THE TYPICAL HEAT  
AND HUMIDITY OF LATE AUGUST.  
 
BE SURE TO DRINK PLENTY OF WATER AND FIND OPPORTUNITIES TO KEEP  
COOL IN THE SHADE, WHEN POSSIBLE.  
 
THE HEAT SHOULD MOVE OUT OF THE AREA LATER ON TUESDAY, AS SHOWERS  
AND THUNDERSTORMS USHER IN COOLER AIR FOR THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.
