Over the last few days, we have been mentioning that this Heat Wave will last at least through Monday. Well the National Weather Service is now in agreement. They have extended their watches until Monday and have also upgraded extreme Southeast PA to an EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING and coastal areas to a HEAT ADVISORY.
Here is a quote from the National Weather Service regarding the Excessive Heat Warning:
“IMPACTS…THE EXCESSIVE HEAT WILL CREATE HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS. THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAT RELATED HEALTH ISSUES WILL BE HIGH, ESPECIALLY FOR THE ELDERLY AND FOR THOSE ALREADY IN POOR HEALTH. THE MULTIPLE DAYS OF EXCESSIVE HEAT WILL GREATLY AFFECT THOSE WHO ARE ATTENDING OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES, ESPECIALLY EVENTS WITH LARGE GROUPS OF PEOPLE THAT ARE GATHERING IN THE DIRECT SUN.”
This is a serious situation especially for the areas outlined in the advisories below. However, that does not mean the rest of the State escapes the heat.
