Dangerously high temperatures this week

LANSING, Mich. – Expect dangerously high temperatures this week and plan ahead. Ingham, Jackson, Calhoun, Clinton and Eaton counties are under a heat advisory that begins at noon today and remains in effect until 8 p.m. Friday. The heat index is expected to reach almost 100 multi-day days, including today.

Heat is the leading weather-related cause of death in the US. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke are possible. Take note if you feel faint or dizzy, have excessive sweating, a fast or weak pulse, or a throbbing headache. If you experience these symptoms, go to a cool, air-conditioned place, take a cool shower, or use a cold compress. Seek medical attention if necessary. Please note that the elderly, children and babies are especially vulnerable to heat. And don’t forget to have extra water on hand for your pets and keep them cool this week too.

We’re tracking scattered showers and thunderstorms for Tuesday, then dry conditions Wednesday through Saturday. Some relief from the heat will be seen by Sunday, with temperatures in the low 80s
