People should drink plenty of water, stay in the shade, and know where their local cooling center is because its going to be a hot one today.

Officials from the National Weather Service say temperatures will reach 94 degrees today, but humidity will make outside temperatures feel like more than 100 degrees.

The same weather can be expected Thursday and into Friday, when a possible thunderstorm rolls in to cool things off.

During this latest heat wave, people are urged to drink plenty of water and take frequent breaks while working outside to avoid heat illnesses.

Those who have to work outside should also watch what they eat this morning, stay out of direct sun as much as possible and stay near an air-conditioned place to cool off if needed.

People should also schedule outside activities for early morning or late afternoon, and wear light-colored, loose fit clothing.

For more information, check out the National Weather Service forecast.
