Heat indices are expected to reach 100-110 degrees each day. Additionally, a few severe storms are possible Thursday.

- Limit strenuous activities to the early morning
- Drink plenty of fluids
- Know the signs of heat cramps, heat exhaustion and heat stroke
- OSHA recommends frequent rest breaks and moving to an air-conditioned location if you are overcome by heat
