High heat warning issued for Twin Cities and surrounding area for Friday

The National Weather Service in Chanhassen has issued a severe heat warning that will be in effect from 11 a.m.to 10 p.m. Friday for the Twin Cities metro area, extending north to St. Cloud and south to the Minnesota-Iowa border.

While the forecast will hoover in the high 90s, the high humidity will make it feel like 107 or 106 degrees in some areas, the National Weather Service said.

On Thursday, the extreme heat can be found over the Rockies and Central Plains, with Denver expecting a record high of 103 degrees, the city's hottest day since it tied the all-time Denver maximum of 105 in late June 2012. Temperatures remain above average in the upper 80s and lower 90s with high heat index values.

For additional information, visit the state Department of Environmental Conservation website at, https://on.ny.gov/nyaqi, or call the Air Quality Hotline at 800-535-1345.

The Red Cross is urging everyone to stay safe in the intense heat by following several tips: drink plenty of fluids and avoid alcohol and caffeine, wear loose-fitting and lightweight clothing, andstay inside where it's air conditioned.

If someone is experiencing heat cramps in the legs or abdomen, bring them to a cooler place where they can rest and lightly stretch.

The heat wave is now forecast to last through July 4 - at least. Also, young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstance because the interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

"With this high humidity and heat, your body will struggle to keep its internal temperature regulated in the healthy zone", Meteorologist Mike Cameron said. With all of the heat and humidity, it's not out of the question for some of the storms to be on the strong side. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Apply cool, wet cloths.

Warm and humid weather is expected on the Fourth of July as well.

Heat stroke is a medical emergency and warrants calling 911, according to officials.

Anyone who'll be working or otherwise spending time outside between now and Monday should take extra precautions.

Slow down. Reduce, eliminate or reschedule strenuous activities until the coolest time of the day.
