Special Statement

Statement as of 4:44 AM CDT on August 20, 2017

Expires 6:30 PM EDT on August 20, 2017


... Afternoon heat index values around 100 degrees expected this
afternoon and Monday afternoon...

For travelers and residents alike, hot and humid conditions will
be the rule for the afternoon hours this Sunday and Monday.

All of the quad state region, including southern Illinois,
southwest Indiana, west Kentucky, and southeast Missouri will see
heat index values in the middle and upper 90s each afternoon.

For those of you living in southeast Missouri and southern
Illinois, heat index values could range between 100 and 103
degrees by the middle of the afternoon on both days.

If you are planning to view the solar eclipse or participate in
other outdoor activities, then please bring along plenty of water
to keep hydrated. If you have any opportunity to do so, take
breaks in the shade or in an air conditioned building.

Isolated thunderstorms will be possible today and on Monday over
parts of the region. Unfortunately, any rain or cloud cover will
do little to lessen the heat and humidity.

Storms will move through the region on Tuesday and will eventually bring
cooler temperatures to the quad state region during the latter
half of this week.
