Another Heat Advisory Will Be In Effect Thursday For Parts in WNY
If you thought it was humid with the heat advisory yesterday, you can expect more of that heat throughout your Thursday.
The National Weather Service has issued another heat advisory for parts of Western New York. It will be in effect from 11 am to 8 pm Thursday for Wyoming, Orleans, Niagara, Genesee, and Erie counties. The heat index values are expected to reach from in the mid 90s to as high as 100.
These hot temperatures and high humidity may cause heat illnesses to occur for some individuals. If you plan to spend long periods of time outside, pay close attention to hydration and try to intentionally take breaks in the shade. If you don’t have air conditioning at home, it may be wise to stop into a public building that does — just to give your body a little break from the heat.
Take precautions if you work outside. If possible, it might be a good idea to reschedule today’s activities to early morning or evening.
And if it’s a risk for you to be outside in this heat, here is a friendly reminder that your young children and pets should not be left outside or unattended in vehicles — especially in these circumstances.
If anyone is overcome by heat, they should be moved to a cool and shade location immediately. Heat stroke is an emergency.
The heat will stretch into Friday, but it is expected to rain for a few hours starting in the early afternoon, which can help lower the heat and humidity going into Friday morning.
