There is a risk of heat-related illness for those without air-conditioning or those outdoors for an extended period of time.

A heat advisory means that a period of high temperatures is expected and the combination of high temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible, according to the Service.


As a precaution, here are some things you can do to reduce your risk:

  • 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
  • drink plenty of water
