Heat Advisory in Effect Today
CBS Philly says there’s a heat advisory out for Philadelphia and Camden today:
“The excessive heat poses a public health risk that can be deadly to residents if they do not take the proper precautions,” said Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez, liaison to the Camden County Department of Health and Human Services in a statement. “At this time we all need to pitch in to make sure no is overexposed to this heat wave. This means, as a community, we need to ensure everyone has access to cool areas and are properly hydrated.”
Officials say those most at risk in extreme heat are older people, those with chronic medical conditions such as heart disease, individuals taking certain regular medications, those with mental illnesses, pregnant women, small children, those who work in a high heat environment, and anyone engaged in strenuous physical activity.
Wednesday will be the hottest and most humid day of the current week (heat advisory in effect for urban areas), with some improvement on Thursday. However, the chances for thunderstorms will continue into Thursday. The greater thunderstorm coverage should be north late on Wednesday into Wednesday night and then shift south on Thursday.
After the heat, the thunderstorms might actually feel good.
