... Just 1 more hot day to go with relief in sight...

Temperatures will rise to around 90 before noon... and further
rise into the mid-90s during this afternoon. Combined with
dewpoints in the 70 to 75 range... heat index values will climb to
between 100 and 104 degrees by and during this afternoon.

Although this remains just below heat advisory thresholds... it is
extremely important to take the necessary precautions to stay well
hydrated and safe when venturing outside during this spell of hot
and humid weather. Some of these precautions while outside
include... drinking plenty of fluids... taking frequent breaks...
and if you must work outside... do so early in the morning or mid
to late this evening.

It is also recommended that you check up on the elderly and
make sure they are in a well ventilated or air conditioned
location. Never... never... leave children or pets unattended in
vehicles with the windows rolled up. And finally... provide plenty
of water for outdoor pets and livestock... and keep them in a well
ventilated and shady location.

The heat and humidity will finally come to an end later today and
tonight as a strong cold front pushes across the area and
offshore. Maximum temperatures for Tuesday will be 10 to 15
degrees cooler than today... with mid to upper 80s for highs.
