Heat advisory issued for third day of 90s in NH
The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for eastern Hillsborough, all of Rockingham and Strafford counties until 8 p.m. Tuesday.
It's the third day of temperatures hitting the 90 degree mark in southern New Hampshire.
Temperatures in the low to mid 90s combined with moderate levels of humidity will create heat index values in the mid to upper 90s. Temperatures will quickly rise this morning, reaching the low 90s by early afternoon.
A heat advisory means the combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors who may be susceptible to heat to make sure they are able to stay cool.
People who work or exercise outside or in hot environments, and children attending summer camps or outdoor sports practices should take extra precautions. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
This is the final day of heat and humidity. Cooler, refreshing air arrives for Wednesday.
