Excessive heat warnings are issued when the combination of high temperatures and humidity is expected to make it feel hotter than 110 degrees.

If you will work outdoors, try and reschedule strenuous activities to the morning or evening. Make sure to drink plenty of water and to take breaks in the shade or in an air-conditioned space.

RAIN PLEASE!!!!!! I have seen it in the dang forecast the last couple of days and we haven't had a drop of rain. I've sat on my deck the last couple of nights watching the lightning all around while we stay dry.....RAIN

At least we don't live in Texas. That tropical storm that was supposed to give them a big dose of rain, fizzled out when it hit shore because of that powerful heat dome over the midsection of our country.
