... Heat advisory in effect from noon to 7 PM EDT Thursday...

The National Weather Service in Charleston has issued a heat
advisory... which is in effect from noon to 7 PM EDT Thursday.

* Locations... all of southeast South Carolina and southeast Georgia.

* Heat index values... up to 110 due to temperatures in the mid 90s
to upper 90s... and moderate to high humidity.

* Impacts... high temperatures and humidity could lead to heat
illnesses if proper precautions are not taken.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

If you must be outdoors... drink plenty of fluids... wear light
weight clothing and stay out of the direct sun. In addition...
know the signs of heat illnesses and be sure to check on those
