Temperatures around 90 and above for next two days, be aware of vulnerable populations

Temperatures are expected to reach to 90-and-above today and Thursday afternoons in Central Allegany County, with heat advisories possible in counties to the east and north.

Potentials for afternoon showers this afternoon increase tomorrow, with excessive rain possible on Friday and Sunday, according to current forecasts from the National Weather Service (NWS) Weather Prediction Center (WPC).

The NWS notes that “everyone is at risk from the dangers of extreme heat,” but groups of people shown in the graphic accompanying this story are “more vulnerable than most” due to the body less able to regulate temperature.

Be Aware. Be Prepared. Stay Safe.TM and continue to monitor for updates and the safety of others.
