Heat Advisory Issued for Burlington

Loving the heat this summer? Well, it's continuing today but may reach dangerous levels.

According to the National Weather Service, a heat advisory has been issued for Burlington today.

The advisory will be in effect from 1-7 p.m.

What does this mean for you? Residents can expect temperatures to peak in the mid 90s, with humidity levels reaching 70 degrees. The combined readings will make it feel closer to 102.

Heat index values that reach 104 degrees will result in dangerous conditions for those spending prolonged periods of time outdoors.

To reduce the risk of heat illness, the NWS recommends drinking plenty of fluids, staying in an air-conditioned room and out of the sun.

Any outdoor activities during these hours should be rescheduled for earlier or later in the day. Wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing.

If you notice anyone overcome by heat, they should be moved to a cool and shaded location, then call 911.
