The weather service advises drinking plenty of fluids, remaining in air-conditioned space, staying out of the sun and checking on relatives and neighbors.

Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location, and help for them should be sought by calling 911 immediately. But, it looks like the city may come close to breaking that mark as a brutal heat wave descends on the region. Some residents are urged to limit their time outdoors including young children, the elderly and those with respiratory problems.

Sunday will likely be the hottest day of our potentially long heat wave as highs approach 100 degrees, maybe falling just a degree or two short in some spots.

If you plan on spending time outdoors, such as at the beach, pool or ballpark, should keep in mind to use sunscreen.
