SOUTH OF A BATON ROUGE TO HAMMOND TO NEW ORLEANS LINE...

.AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE LOW TO MID 90S IN CONJUNCTION WITH HIGH HUMIDITY

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...
THE HEAT INDEX IS A MEASURE OF HOW HOT IT FEELS WHEN THE EFFECTS OF HUMIDITY ARE
COMBINED WITH THE TEMPERATURE. A HEAT INDEX OF 105 DEGREES IS CONSIDERED THE LEVEL
WHERE MANY PEOPLE BEGIN TO EXPERIENCE EXTREME DISCOMFORT OR PHYSICAL STRESS. THE HEAT
INDEX IS MEASURED UNDER SHADY CONDITIONS...AND DIRECT EXPOSURE TO SUNLIGHT CAN INCREASE
THE HEAT INDEX AS MUCH AS 15 DEGREES.

A HEAT ADVISORY MEANS THAT A PERIOD OF HOT TEMPERATURES IS EXPECTED. THE COMBINATION OF
HOT TEMPERATURES AND HIGH HUMIDITY WILL COMBINE TO CREATE A SITUATION IN WHICH HEAT
ILLNESSES ARE POSSIBLE. DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS...STAY IN AN AIR-CONDITIONED
ROOM...STAY OUT OF THE SUN...AND CHECK UP ON RELATIVES AND NEIGHBORS.
