(It is going to be hot for most of the week)….Not just hot, but excessively hot.

The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for today, Tuesday and Wednesday. No warning for Thursday, but temperatures are expected to be around 113 on that day. Tuesday could be a record setting day, with temperatures predicted to be above 117 degrees. It is strongly suggested that residents know where the Cool Centers are before going out the first part of this week. A list of Cool Centers is available on the IID, County and Public Health websites. Wear loose fitting, light colored clothing when outdoors. Stay in the shade as much as possible, and take frequent breaks if you work outside. Stay hydrated by drinking a lot of water and never, ever leave a child or animal in a vehicle unattended.
