  • Southland Faces Dramatic Spike in Heat Without Climate-Change Action

By mid-century, a large swath of the US, including most of Texas, could see a few days in an average year when the heat index value - a measure that takes temperature and humidity levels into account - surpasses the National Weather Service's heat index scale.

Make sure you stay hydrated through the day and avoid any strenuous activity during the hottest hours of the afternoon. They found that without global action to fight climate change, the number of days that feel hotter than 100 degrees Fahrenheit would increase from 14 to 36 in the U.S. In the Southeast, the number would rise from 15 days to 65 days.

Also, keep in mind to check up on your elderly neighbors, and those who may not have A.C. Never leave kids or pets unattended in a vehicle. A heat advisory is in effect for all of eastern North Carolina until 7 p.m. High humidity deters the human body's ability to regulate its own temperature, and as Florida is known for its elevated humidity levels, residents of the Sunshine State may find themselves at increased risk in the coming years. "Exposure to conditions in that range makes it hard for human bodies to cool themselves and could be deadly". "Historically, such incalculable conditions have represented the world's most oppressively hot, dangerous, and, fortunately, rare days - those with a heat index well above 130°F". The mercury will be closer to the century mark by Friday afternoon and into Saturday. High temperatures will be in the 90s Tuesday through Saturday with high humidity levels in the forecast.

"That's one of the biggest dangers, particularly as we get toward the weekend", Johnson said.

Wednesday night through Thursday, showers and possibly a thunderstorm are likely across the state, offering a break from high temperatures in the 90s and high humidity.
