FROM GARFIELD COUNTY EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT
HEAT, WHAT IS IT: the quality of being hot; high temperature. This is what we feel at this time of the year. It’s summertime. When you add humidity to the temps, the HEAT INDEX goes up. This is why I state to monitor yourself, the kids, and your pets because they feel it too. You have to be careful out there. It’s similar to wintertime. As it gets colder, you FEEL IT. What do you do when you feel colder? You cover up. It’s the same for heat.
Observe and protect those close to you and make sure they understand the risks.
Here is your forecast from the NWS/NORMAN;
Tuesday-Sunny and hot, with a high near 99. Heat index values as high as 102. South wind 8 to 14 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.

HAVE A SUPER DAY AND STAY COOL
