    The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning, for the urbanized areas of the Delaware Valley. The warning is from 11 a.m. Wednesday through 6 a.m. Thursday.

    This means that a prolonged period of hot weather will take place.

    Temperatures in the upper 90s, along with high humidity, will make it feel more like 100+.

    Be sure to take precautions, over the next few days, to help beat the heat.


    1. Drink plenty of fluids.

    2. Wear light, loose clothing.

    3. Stay in air-conditioned rooms.
