Temperatures are going to be in the 90’s, with the heat index in the triple digits each afternoon through the weekend and in to next week. That is dangerously hot for anyone who is outdoors for extended periods, especially if there is physical activity involved. It is critical to stay well hydrated, that means drinking a lot of WATER, and to take regular breaks, preferably in an air conditioned or cool location.
