High Temperatures today to increase outdoor risks

 

A hot and muggy day is in store for portions of Middle Tennessee… Strong upper level ridging moving into the area will allow for high temperatures this afternoon to range in the low to mid 90s. This combined with increasing moisture will yield heat index readings in the low 90s near the plateau, to the low 100s near the Tennessee river.

Heat indices this high will increase the risk of heat-related illness if proper precautions are not taken. If outside today… Wear light colored and light weight clothing. Take frequent breaks and drink plenty of water as well. And never leave children or pets in your vehicle… Even if just for a few minutes.
