Excessive Heat Watch

Statement as of 4:01 PM CDT on July 24, 2014

Expires 9:00 PM EDT on July 26, 2014

... Excessive heat watch remains in effect from Friday afternoon
through Saturday evening...

An excessive heat watch is in effect...

For the following counties...

* in Oklahoma... Pawnee... Tulsa and Osage.

Hazardous weather...
* a ridge of high pressure aloft will spread over Oklahoma and
   Arkansas Friday on through the weekend. As a result... high
   temperatures will climb to near the century mark across
   northeast Oklahoma Friday and Saturday. Combining this heat
   with high dewpoints will yield afternoon heat index values in
   the 105 to 108 range. In addition... overnight lows in the Tulsa
   Metro and points to the northwest will remain very warm Friday
   night due to persistent south to southwest winds... and thus
   will not provide much relief from the heat.

* the combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will
   combine to create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses
   are possible.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...
* 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.

* To reduce risk during outdoor work the occupational safety and
   health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest
   breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone
   overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location.
   Heat stroke is an emergency... call 911.

* Stay tuned to NOAA Weather Radio... commercial radio or television
   for the latest information concerning this weather event.
