By National Weather Service
PADUCAH - The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a heat advisory for all of western Kentucky and the southernmost counties of southern Illinois.

Heat indices will be peaking near 105 degrees this afternoon. Isolated thunderstorms could produce temporary relief. Most places will remain dry and hot.

The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will likely lead to an increased risk of heat related stress and illness. The very young, the elderly, those without air conditioning, and those participating in strenuous outdoor activities will be the most susceptible. Also, car interiors can
reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.
