CLEVELAND — As we prepare for some extremely hot weather across the region, the National Weather Service has issued some heat-related weather alerts for all of Northeast Ohio.
These include an Excessive Heat Warning and a Heat Advisory -- but no matter which alert you're under it's still going to be sizzling hot.
3News meteorologist Hollie Strano says the heat could break records with actual air temperatures in the mid to upper 90s as the feels-like conditions will be around 111 degrees.
“Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors,” the National Weather Service advises. “Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside.”
It’s also suggested that you reschedule any strenuous activities to the early morning or evening.
“To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments,” the National Weather Service continues. “Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency. Call 911.”
Here’s a closer look at the Heat Advisory and Excessive Heat Warning:
EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING 10 a.m. until 9 p.m. Wednesday
HEAT ADVISORY from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m.
HEAT ADVISORY from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m.
We stay in the 90s again Thursday before cooler and more comfortable temperatures return to Northeast Ohio heading into the weekend.
