I just read the NOAA Special Weather Statement for most of the Southeast for over the weekend and into the middle of next week..Temps into the 90s and above in some places.

SOME HEAT WAVE SAFETY TIPS ARE...

SLOW DOWN AND TRY TO SCHEDULE STRENUOUS OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES DURING THE COOLEST TIMES OF THE DAY...SUCH AS THE MORNING AND LATE EVENING.

DRINK PLENTY OF WATER OR OTHER NON ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES.

DRESS FOR SUMMER AND AVOID GETTING TOO MUCH SUN. SUNBURN MAKES THE JOB OF HEAT DISSIPATION THAT MUCH MORE DIFFICULT.

SPEND MORE TIME IN AIR CONDITIONED PLACES.

REMEMBER TO THINK ABOUT YOUR PETS AS WELL. MAKE SURE YOUR
OUTSIDE PETS HAVE ACCESS TO SHADE AND PLENTY OF CLEAN WATER.
