A heat advisory remains in effect until 7 PM CDT Tuesday.

* Excessive heat and humidity is expected to continue through
Tuesday. This is especially important given all the area
events... from High School football and soccer games... to
ongoing state fairs and festivals.

* Temperatures will continue to reach the lower to mid 90s each
afternoon through early next week. These temperatures will
combine with high humidity to produce afternoon heat index
values from 100 to 105 for most locales. Isolated locations will
continue to see the heat index top 105 at times.

* The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will
create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. 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 lightweight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.
