The director the New York State Office for the Aging is warning senior citizens and their caregivers about high temperatures.

High temperatures and stifling humidity expected this weekend has prompted the National Weather Service's Cleveland issue a heat advisory for Ashtabula County and northeast OH for today. Expect dangerously hot temperatures Thursday through Saturday with peak heat index values between 100-105 degrees.

In Chicago, where heat indexes were forecast to hit as high as 110 degrees, city workers on Saturday had to hose down a bridge because the extreme heat could cause the steel to expand.

The weather service will likely issue more severe heat warnings for Sunday and Monday.

"It will be a sunny, hot and humid Sunday with a high in the upper 90s", he said. Young children and pets should not be left unattended in vehicles. These factors along with an increase in high and mid-level clouds will all contribute to near-record high overnight temperatures again tonight, again providing no relief from the heat, especially in the Chicago "heat island".

SATURDAY | Hazy sunshine, hot and humid.

Most of July's first week will be hotter than normal.

Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location, and help for them should be sought by calling 911 immediately.

Symptoms of heat exhaustion include nausea, vomiting, cold/pale/clammy skin, heavy sweating, fast and weak pulse, and weakness or fainting. Also, 911 should be immediately called, as heat stroke is a medical emergency. Not only that, but it will be important to put on sunscreen if you plan on spending time outdoors and be sure to reapply it often.

The NWS recommends anyone who will be outside should remain hydrated, limit strenuous outdoor activities, and wear lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing. It is best to avoid extended amounts of time in the sun from the late morning to early evening.
