The National Weather Service in Topeka has issued a heat advisory for Douglas and surrounding counties from 11 a.m. Sunday through 8 p.m. on Monday.

According to the weather service, air temperatures around 100 degrees coupled with humidity will lead to heat indices of 105 Sunday afternoon into Monday.

The National Weather Service suggests you limit outdoor activity while the heat advisory is in place, if at all possible. If that's not possible, remember to wear loose fitting, light colored clothing and drink plenty of fluids while outside.
