More Heat, Humidity Prompt Advisory
A Heat Advisory is in effect through Thursday
The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory through Thursday. WNIN’s John Gibson has details:
Forecasters are predicting temperatures reaching the mid-to-upper 90’s in the Tri-State, with heat index values up to 109.
The weather service says the heat and humidity may cause heat-related illnesses.
You’re urged to stay hydrated, dress lightly, and take advantage of air conditioning as much as possible.
Forecasters say low temperatures will generally be in the mid to upper 70s, so they don’t expect much relief even at night.
Isolated thunderstorms are expected to provide relief to "a very few."
More: The city of Evansville is again offering a cooling center.
Mayor’s spokesman Noah Stubbs says the lobby of the C.K. Newsome Community Center will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. this week for anyone seeking a safe, indoor space to get relief from the heat.
The city also opened C.K. Newsome as a cooling center last month.
