...AFTERNOON HEAT INDEX VALUES AROUND 100 DEGREES TODAY AND  
POSSIBLY AGAIN FRIDAY...  
 
A STRONG AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE ALOFT WILL ALLOW HOT AND HUMID  
CONDITIONS TO SET IN ACROSS THE ENTIRE FOUR STATE REGION AGAIN  
TODAY. HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE LOWER TO MIDDLE 90S, COUPLED WITH  
MODERATE TO HIGH HUMIDITY, WILL LEAD TO HEAT INDEX VALUES NEAR  
100 ROUGHLY FROM 11 AM TO 5 PM.  
 
A WEAK COLD FRONT IS EXPECTED TO MOVE THROUGH THE REGION FRIDAY  
AFTERNOON. AHEAD OF IT, HEAT INDEX VALUES MAY REACH TRIPLE DIGITS  
FOR AT LEAST AN HOUR OR TWO. THE FRONT WILL EVENTUALLY LEAD TO  
SOME RELIEF FROM THE EXTREME HEAT AND HUMIDITY AS WE HEAD INTO  
THE WEEKEND.  
 
IF YOU MUST WORK OR ARE PLANNING OTHER OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES IN THE  
HEAT AND HUMIDITY, BE SURE TO KEEP HYDRATED BY DRINKING PLENTY OF  
WATER. TAKE FREQUENT BREAKS IN THE SHADE WHEN POSSIBLE OR SEEK  
AIR-CONDITIONED SHELTER, IF AVAILABLE.
