0712 Heat Exhaustion and Stroke.jpg

The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory for the D.C. and Baltimore Metro areas for Thursday starting at Noon through 8 p.m.

Please take this sort of heat seriously. The NWS says, "the high heat and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible." If you have to work outside, schedule frequent rest breaks in the shade or in the air conditioning. Heat stroke is an emergency, call 911.

Even early Thursday morning the "feels like" temperatures are expected to be around 85°. Here's what you can expect throughout the day. If you're lucky, a quick thunderstorm might drop these very high numbers off a bit! Stay safe!
