Dangerous, prolonged heat expected in Kansas City metro area into the weekend | The Kansas City Star

The National Weather Service in Chanhassen has issued a severe heat warning that will be in effect from 11 a.m.to 10 p.m. Friday for the Twin Cities metro area, extending north to St. Cloud and south to the Minnesota-Iowa border. Saturday and Sunday will be hot and humid with highs in the low 90s on both days, but the humidity will make it feel more like 100 degrees at times.

Friday's high is expected to be in the low 90s, but with a heat index of 100. If you don't have air conditioning, visit cool areas like a recreation center or library.

The weather service advises drinking plenty of fluids, remaining in air-conditioned space, staying out of the sun and checking on relatives and neighbors. "It's likely we will see heat advisories for many days to come".

"Take it easy if you are working or playing outdoors as the heat stress will catch up with you quickly", he said. Be sure to keep a close eye on children and pets during the heat wave, keeping them in the shade and well hydrated.

Temperatures were in the 90s from Chicago to New York City on Saturday, including a high of 96 degrees in Newark, New Jersey, 95 degrees in Philadelphia and 93 degrees in Central Park. Numbers may be slightly cooler along Lake Erie.

Amazon Wants to Promote Small Package Delivery Fleets
USPS said in its annual report previous year that its revenue growth "is driven entirely by increases in shipping and packages". Amazon's dependence on services such as USPS, UPS and FedEx , which deliver the bulk of its packages, also has downsides.

SUNDAY: Extreme heat and humidity. This is especially true during warm or hot weather when vehicle interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

A cold front will push across Wisconsin Sunday afternoon and evening bringing a chance for thunderstorms.

Philadelphia, which hit 92 degrees on Sunday with a heat index of 105, similarly sounded the alarm to its residents and visitors about the unsafe heat. "Excessive exposure to heat can cause a range of heat-related illnesses, from heat rash and heat cramps to heat exhaustion and heat stroke". Apply cool, wet cloths.

Symptoms of heat stroke include hot body temperature, hot/red/dry/moist skin, rapid and strong pulse and possible unconsciousness. "When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening".

Dress for summer. Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing to reflect heat and sunlight.
