... Heat indices between 105 and 109 degrees are expected today...

The combination of warm temperatures and high dewpoints will
produce heat indices between 105 and 109 degrees this afternoon,
with a few locations topping 110 degrees. Residents with outdoor
activities planned are urged to drink plenty of water... wear light
weight and light colored clothing... and take frequent breaks from
the heat. Young children and pets should never be left unattended
