The National Weather Service has issued excessive heat warnings for most of the Philadelphia area.
The heat warnings will be in effect from Saturday morning to Sunday evening. Actual temperatures will range in the mid 90’s, but NBC10 meteorologist Sheena Parveen says it will feel close to 100 degrees.
The weather is expected to be hot and humid which could possibly lead to heat-related illnesses across the region.
"The most important thing is to stay out of the sun and stay hydrated during the day,"says Parveen. But if you want to escape the heat she says "the coolest places to be is near the shore, at the Poconos or inside with the air conditioning."
Here are some more tips that will keep you cool throughout this steamy weekend:
- Avoid peak hours from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- Wear light, loose fitted clothing
- Stay in air conditioning
- Stay out of the sun for long periods of time
- Drink plenty of fluids.
- Check on relatives and neighbors.
