The combination of heat and humidity will bring apparent
temperatures in excess of 100 degrees in many spots today. Even
though the coast will be cooler this afternoon because of the sea
breeze, the elevated humidity, will result in high heat indices
near the ocean as well.

As a Summer reminder, if outside, consider wearing loose and
light clothing, seek shade and stay hydrated. Check on the
elderly, and please do not leave children or pets in a vehicle
unattended, due to the extreme heating inside the vehicle.
