TOLEDO, Ohio — Tuesday is an Alert Day with hot and humid weather once again taking over.
Temperatures will be near a record of 100 degrees, and the day will feel downright hot. The last time 100 degrees was recorded at the Eugene F. Kranz Toledo Express Airport was back in 2012.
Here are three things you need to know for Tuesday’s Alert Day:
- First: Limit your time outdoors. With excessive heat, taking breaks inside with air conditioning will help to keep your body cool.
- Second: Record heat is forecasted. Though 90-degree days have been experienced already, the full sunshine and humid feel will be noticeable. The humidity won’t be as strong as last week, but it will add a muggy feel to the air. Make sure to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
- Third: Feels-like temperatures will reach the triple digits. The heat index is forecasting temperatures in the low 100s. The air temperatures alone will be hot, but the slight mugginess to the air will add an extra layer to the heat.
Plan ahead and try to avoid being outdoors during the peak heat in the afternoon. Take breaks in the air conditioning and find local cooling spots.
Finally, stay hydrated even if you only have limited outdoor time.
