Anyway you slice it, It's hot, and its going to stay that way right through the weekend.
The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for areas to the north and west of Springfield from 1 p.m. Wednesday through 7 p.m. on Saturday. The rest of the KTTS Listening area is under a heat advisory from 1 p.m. this afternoon until 7 p.m. Saturday.
Temperatures are expected to climb between 98 and 105 each afternoon across the warning area. Heat indices will range from 100 to 108 as a result of slowly increasing humidity.
An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of dangerously hot temperatures will take place. The combination of heat and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are likely.
Limit your time outdoors if possible, and know the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
Wear light and loose fitting clothing and drink plenty of water.
Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.
Heat stroke is an emergency. Call 9-1-1 if you need help.
