Alabama Skies: Dangerous heat settles in for several days
Published 8:13 pm Wednesday, June 28, 2023
People sometimes joke about Alabama’s summer heat and oppressive humidity, but there is nothing to laugh about Thursday and Friday.
Dangerous – potentially deadly – heat has settled in over the region. We’ll have heat index values up to 111 degrees Thursday. There will be a few slight breezes at various times during the day, but winds will be mostly calm. We’ll also stay warm into the night with morning lows only in the upper 70s.
Anyone working outside or living without air conditioning should take precautions to stay safe. Take plenty of water breaks, have fans blowing if possible, and stay in the shade as often as possible. If pets can’t be inside, they should be in shady areas with plenty of water refreshed throughout the day. Check on elderly neighbors or people with special needs.
