Temperatures are back on the rise Thursday, with abundant summer sunshine and a high dew point swinging temperatures up to about 94 degrees.
In parts of the region, the heat index could reach up to the low 100s, though some isolated storms could surface later in the evening and bring some relief, as they have the past few days.
It may make your morning commute a little more uncomfortable, but don’t let the weather hold you back. We’ve got a list of ways to help stay safe and cool even when the temperatures get dangerously high.
A quick run-down of the basics:
- Wear loose, lightweight, and bright clothing to reflect sunlight.
- Eat light and healthy foods to keep your immune system running well.
- Use fans to blow hot air out of a room, rather than just push it around inside.
- And of course, make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day, even if you don’t feel very thirsty. Cool (not cold) water can be used by your body faster.
