Wiregrass Area Under Heat Advisory from 1pm Central to 6pm Central Today

A combination of heat and humidity could create dangerously hot conditions today across the wiregrass.

The National Weather Service office in Tallahassee, Florida has placed much of the Wiregrass under a Heat Advisory. This advisory begins at 1pm Central (2pm Eastern) and lasts until 6pm Central (7pm Eastern).

Some of the communities in the advisory include: Enterprise, Ozark, Fort Rucker, Dothan, Daleville, Headland, Abbeville, Geneva, Hartford, Samson, Slocomb, Malvern, Taylor, Ashford, Dothan, Kinsey, Cowarts, Webb, Cottonwood, Rehobeth, Georgetown, Fort Gaines, Cuthbert, Shellman, Arlington, Midland City, Blaklely, Douglasville and surrounding areas.

Forecasters are predicting maximum air temperatures between 96 and 99 degrees. Heat indices, a projection of how meteorological factors make it feel, could reach as high as 110 degrees. The heat index reflects how it feels in the shade, so it is possible it could feel even hotter in direct sunlight.

If you are outdoors, drink plenty of fluids. Stay out of the sun and in an air-conditioned structure if possible. Be sure to also monitor relatives, pets, and sensitive plants.

    Look out creek here I come. Nothing like a day at the creek fishing and swimming. We were at home yesterday and it was past 90 and we just have fans, sure it was hot--- but it wasn't cold. I can't hardly stand cold weather.If the weather would stay about 75 it would be perfect.
