A Heat Advisory is in effect from noon today to 7 pm this evening for Vernon, Barton, Jasper Counties.

Friday afternoon over extreme southeastern Kansas and far western Missouri.

Afternoon temperatures in the middle 90s combined with humid conditions will cause heat index values to range from 100 to 105 degrees.

Hot and humid weather can result in heat related illnesses if proper precautions are not taken. Those working outside, children, the elderly and those without access to air conditioning are particularly susceptible.

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.
