A heat advisory is issued when a temperature and humidity are expected to be high enough to cause possible heat-related illnesses.
People are cautioned to take actions to prevent such problems, including scheduling strenuous activity for early in the day or later at night, drinking plenty of fluids and staying indoors in air conditioning and out of the sun, if possible. Also people are advised to check on elderly friends, neighbors and family members.
