Greater Morristown is under an excessive heat warning through 8 pm today, Wednesday, July 10, 2024.

The National Weather Service predicts a high temperature of 92 degrees, with “dangerously hot conditions” including heat index values ranging between 100 and 105.

There is a mild chance of afternoon thunderstorms, with 25 mph gusts possible. Heavy rainfall from storms is more likely overnight, according to the forecast.

The weather service offers these safety tips during this intense heat:

Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of

the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors.

Do not leave young children and pets in unattended vehicles. Car

interiors will reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

Take extra precautions when outside. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing. Try to limit strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Take action when you see symptoms of heat exhaustion and

heat stroke.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an

emergency! Call 9 1 1.
