Message summary: ...extended period of high heat index values...
An extended period of high heat index values will begin today and continue right through tuesday across northern new york and vermont. The heat index is a measure of how hot it really feels when relative humidity is factored in with the air temperature. Values are expected to be in the upper 80s to lower 90s during the afternoon hours today through tuesday due to record breaking heat expected during this time period. This will create a greater likelihood of heat related illnesses...especially when prolonged exposure or strenuous activity takes place in these conditions. Anyone with outdoor activities planned today through tuesday may be more susceptible to heat related illnesses...especially if you will be outdoors for an extended period of time or taking part in strenuous activity. Stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade...check on elderly family or friends who may not have air conditioning...and do not leave kids or pets unattended in vehicles.
