Wednesday AM Forecast: Heat Advisory issued for the entire WBRZ viewing area
A Heat Advisory is back.
Today & Tonight: A Heat Advisory will be active from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. today. The heat index will be between 108-112° this afternoon. Like yesterday, a few spots will get a shower or storm. Those locations will see the heat index drop significantly, but most will stay hot and dry. If you need to be outside today, take good care of yourself and drink lots of water. Temperatures tonight will not offer much relief, in the mid-70s.
Listen to your body! When it gets this hot, do not tough it out. Drink plenty of water and take breaks when you are tired. #HeatAdvisory #heatsafety pic.twitter.com/xRTnJeDWq7— Marisa Nuzzo WBRZ (@marisanuzzowx) June 22, 2022
Sun and Heat Safety: Some friendly reminders as the intense heat makes a comeback—sunburn can occur in less than 15 minutes with the extreme U.V. Index typical of this time of year. In addition to that, heat exhaustion and heat stroke can set in just as quickly. Seek medical attention if you or somebody you know is affected. While we all enjoy a list of cool beverages, be sure water is at least a part of that list! Finally, look before you lock. DO NOT leave people or pets in an unattended car.
Up Next: Expect a string of heat advisories or warnings for the rest of the week. Afternoon temperatures will be at least 98°, temperatures could briefly go up to 100°. That is just the air temperature! After factoring in the humidity, it will feel between 108-113° in the afternoon. Rain will be tough to come by. A stray shower will be possible almost every afternoon, but most locations will be completely dry. Click here to see the 7-day forecast.
