Ready for some serious heat and humidity? It’s on the way!
The combination of heat and humidity will make it feel like it’s about 107° Friday afternoon and that’s why the National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for the Quad Cities for Friday and Saturday.
This was originally issued as a Heat Advisory, as heat index values were expected around 105°. Now it looks like we could be in the 105° to 110° range and that’s why it’s been upgraded to the more serious warning.
Some advice for days like this:
Stay inside where’s the A/C
Drink a lot of water
Avoid strenuous outside work during the late morning through evening hours
Check on elderly and the pets
Wear light colored and loose fitting clothing
