It's been hot this summer, but not this hot. We are bracing for highs in the low to mid 90s into the weekend. The heat plus oppressive humidity will be a dangerous combination as the heat index surges into the triple digits. The entire LEX 18 viewing is under either an Excessive Heat Warning or a Heat Advisory over the next few days.

As a reminder take it easy in this heat. Be sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water. Avoid caffeine and alcohol. If you're working or playing outside, spend some time in the shade, even better take a break in the AC. The heat can put more stress on the young, the elder, and your pets. Be sure to check on them and make sure they are keeping cool.
