Summer is heating up quickly.

The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement for Tuesday for a heat index of 100 degrees.

Summertime will be in full swing across the midstate region on Tuesday at the daytime highs hit the lower to mid- 90s and high humidity. This will create a heat index — how the heat feels rather than actual temperature — west of the Cumberland Plateau.

Keep hot weather safety rules in mind.

  • Never leave a child or a pet in a closed car for even a few minutes. Summer daytime heating can reach deadly levels in a very brief time.
  • Check on the elderly to make sure they are coping with the heat.
  • If you cannot afford an air conditioner, go to a library, store or other location with air conditioning in the hottest part of the day.
  • If your must be outdoors, take frequent breaks, drink plenty of water and reschedule activities to a cooler part of the day.
  • Wear ightweight light-colored clothing to reflect heat and sunlight.
  • Listen to your body and be aware of the signs of heat stroke, heat cramps, and heart exhaustion.
  • Lastly, stay in the shade. Substitute a lawn chair under a tree for the lawnmower in the yard.
