The heat advisory is in effect for the following counties: Northern and Southern Oneida, Onondaga, Madison, Yates, Seneca and Southern Cayuga.

HEAT INDEX VALUES... In the upper 90s due to temperatures in the lower 90s, and dewpoints in the upper 60s.

TIMING... From the midday hours into the early evening.

WHAT TO DO...As always drinking plenty of fluids and stay indoors as much as possible. And check on older relatives and neighbors. Reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening and wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing.
