The National Weather Service in Cleveland has issued an excessive heat watch…which is in effect Thursday afternoon.

Temperatures will soar into the lower to mid 90s across Northern Ohio and Northwest Pennsylvania Thursday afternoon. This combined with the high humidity will push the heat index to between 105 and 110 degree.

precautionary/preparedness actions

The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a dangerous situation in which heat-related 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.
