Excessive Heat Watch

Statement as of 3:03 PM EDT on July 21, 2017

Expires 7:00 PM EDT on July 23, 2017


... Heat advisory remains in effect until 8 PM EDT this evening...
... Excessive heat watch in effect from Saturday morning through
Sunday evening...

The National Weather Service in Raleigh has issued an excessive
heat watch, which is in effect from late Saturday morning through
Sunday evening.

* Heat index values... 107 to 112 degrees during the late morning
and afternoon hours this evening through Sunday. In addition,
temperatures at night will remain in the 80s for much of the
night through the weekend. The accumulative affect of this high
heat and humidity and the expected lows at night near 80, will
produce very dangerous conditions through Sunday.

* Timing... heat advisory tonight, then excessive heat watch for
Fayetteville/Cumberland County and Raleigh/Wake County late
Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon.

* Impacts... the accumulative affect of several days of the
dangerous heat and humidity along with the expected lows at
night only falling to 80 degrees, will produce very dangerous
conditions. The long duration heat episode and excessive heat
may quickly cause heat stress, heat illnesses, and even heat
stroke.


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat watch means that a prolonged period of hot
temperatures is expected. The combination of hot temperatures and
high humidity will combine to create a dangerous 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.

Take extra precautions... if you work or spend time outside. When
possible... reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible
and drink plenty of water.

Children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles.
Car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of
minutes.
