The National Weather Service has extended its Excessive Heat Warning for the Tri-State. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:

The warning has been extended through Thursday as dangerously hot and humid conditions persist in the Evansville area.

So far, high temperatures in Evansville have reached the upper 90’s, staying below 100. But the heat index has topped 110 in the afternoon.

Ozone pollution also remains a concern. Officials have extended the Air Quality Alert through today (Wed).

Children, the elderly, and anyone with respiratory issues should limit time outdoors.

Officials also urge you to carpool or use public transportation to reduce ozone emissions.

They also ask that you turn off your engine when idling for more than 30 seconds and avoid refueling your vehicle or using gasoline-powered lawn equipment until after 7 pm.
