An Excessive Heat Warning continues through Wednesday

The Tri-State faces more record heat and potentially hazardous air Tuesday. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:

Evansville recorded a record high of 97 degrees Monday, and forecasters are predicting an even hotter day Tuesday.

The National Weather Service is expecting a high of 100, with the humidity making it feel more like 110.

An Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect through Wednesday.

Weather Service meteorologist Derrick Snyder suggests we look out for each other:

"If you know anyone who's vulnerable, especially the elderly who can be particularly vulnerable to these kinds of heat waves, you might want to reach out to them and make sure they're doing okay during this heat, and make sure we all get through this safely."

Meantime, IDEM has issued an Air Quality Action Day for Tuesday due to potential increased levels of ozone pollution.

The air quality could become hazardous, especially for children, older adults, and anyone with respiratory issues.

IDEM urges residents to carpool, use public transportation, and adjust thermostats to save energy and reduce emissions.
