The National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a Heat Advisory, which is in effect throughout the whole weekend. Here's what we know so far:

This advisory is in effect from noon Saturday to 10PM Monday for ALL of Central New York.

A prolonged heat wave will start on Saturday and intensify Sunday and Monday with the highest heat index values each afternoon. Hot and humid weather will continue through most of next week."

The heat index will range from 95 to around 100 Saturday afternoon, then from 100 to locally 110 Sunday and Monday afternoons.

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Remember to drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned
room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors.

Take extra precautions, if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water."

Stay safe and cool.
