Consecutive days of excessive heat have a cumulative effect on the body creating a situation in which heat illness is possible. Take extra precautions if you plan to work or spend time outside. When possible reschedule strenuous activites to early morning or evening. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing and drink plenty of water.
