Douglas County has moved into day four of an excessive heat warning that is in effect until 7 p.m. Friday.
Expect temperatures in the upper 90's to nearly 105 degrees every day this week, with afternoon heat indices from 105 to 112 degrees. It appears the region will still be sweltering during the evening as well, with overnight lows only cooling down to the upper 70's and lower 80's, according to the National Weather Service.
Prolonged exposure to the dangerous heat could result in heat exhaustion, heat cramps and heat stroke. Remember to drink plenty of water and stay in an air conditioned building if possible. Many public buildings in Douglas County will be open for those trying to stay cool.
