* HEAT INDEX...SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS HAVE PROVIDED SOME LOCAL  
RELIEF FROM THE HEAT. OUTSIDE OF THUNDERSTORMS, TEMPERATURES IN  
THE LOWER 90S COUPLED WITH HIGH HUMIDITY WILL RESULT IN HEAT  
INDEX READINGS FROM 105 TO 110 INTO EARLY THIS EVENING.  
 
* IMPACTS...THE COMBINATION OF HEAT AND HUMIDITY WILL LEAD TO AN  
INCREASED RISK OF HEAT-RELATED STRESS AND ILLNESS. THE VERY  
YOUNG, THE ELDERLY, THOSE WITHOUT AIR CONDITIONING, AND THOSE  
PARTICIPATING IN STRENUOUS OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES WILL BE THE MOST  
SUSCEPTIBLE. ALSO, CAR INTERIORS CAN REACH LETHAL TEMPERATURES  
IN A MATTER OF MINUTES.  
 
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...  
 
YOUNG CHILDREN AND PETS SHOULD NEVER BE LEFT UNATTENDED IN  
VEHICLES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE DURING  
HOT WEATHER WHEN CAR INTERIORS CAN REACH LETHAL TEMPERATURES IN A  
MATTER OF MINUTES. REMEMBER TO LOOK BEFORE YOU LOCK.
