Heat advisory for KC metro goes into effect this afternoon

Here’s when heat index may top 105° this week

Heat index values reach 105 midday and top off near 110 by afternoon and stay near 105 to the evening.

The region hardest-hit by this week's heat wave could experience many more days each year when the heat index soars as the effects of climate change increase, scientists say. The same humidity that pushed the feels-like temperatures to 111 degrees today will fuel these stronger storms.

"The excessive heat and humidity will persist into Tuesday", officials said.

The heat index in Muscle Shoals topped out at 112 degrees, according to the weather service, making it the hottest on record since July 14, 1980. Tomorrow a cold front arrives with numerous showers and thunderstorms by afternoon. Some of these storms have the possibility to have strong winds and risky lightning.

"Either way, we will cool down to the 90s [on Wednesday]", he said. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening.


The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity could quickly cause heat-related illnesses such as heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Never leave children or pets unattended in vehicles!

Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air-conditioned environments.

"Just wait until the middle of the week; there's going to be a big warm-up", San Diego's NBC 7 Meteorologist Sheena Parveen said of the impending oppressive heat still to come.
