The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory from midnight tonight to midnight Monday. Daytime temperatures will reach 100+ in Buhl, Filer, Jerome, and Twin Falls.

The combination of warm overnight and hot afternoon temperatures will increase the risk of heat related illness in the Magic Valley and southern Twin Falls County. Heat sensitive individuals, especially those working outside fully exposed to the warm temperatures, need to prepare in advance to stay cool and properly hydrated.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. The hot temperatures will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors.

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. If you suspect someone has Heat stroke, call 9 1 1.
