The US National Weather Service New York NY has issued a HEAT ADVISORY and EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING covering Wed 8/11 and Thurs 8/12, which is likely to be extended to include Friday 8/13.

The combination of high temperatures in the 90s and high humidity are likely to result in a heat index over 100 tomorrow and 105 on Thurs.

Also note there is a possibility of thunderstorms both afternoons and evenings.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

An Excessive Heat Warning is issued when the combination of heat

and humidity is expected to make it feel like it is 105 degrees

or greater. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time

outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early

morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat

exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting

clothing when possible, and drink plenty of water.

Seniors and those with chronic health problems or mental health

conditions are at increased risk. Homes without air conditioning

can be much hotter than outdoors.

Use air conditioning to stay cool at home or go to a place that

has air conditioning. Check on vulnerable friends, family members

and neighbors.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and

Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks

in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by

heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke

is an emergency! In cases of heat stroke call 9 1 1.
