Sigh. Severe Weather Alert from the National Weather Service

...BRONX NY-KINGS (BROOKLYN) NY-NEW YORK (MANHATTAN) NY-QUEENS NY-RICHMOND (STATEN IS.) NY- 340 AM EDT WED JUN 9 2004 CORRECTED TO OMIT HUDSON COUNTY IN NEW JERSEY FROM ADVISORY

... HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 10 AM THIS MORNING TO 8 PM EDT THIS EVENING...

MOSTLY SUNNY SKIES AND A HOT SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW AROUND BERMUDA HIGH PRESSURE WILL PUSH HIGH TEMPERATURES ACROSS NEW YORK CITY THIS AFTERNOON INTO THE LOWER 90S. THESE TEMPERATURES COUPLED WITH DEW POINTS CLIMBING TO AROUND 70 DEGREES WILL CREATE HEAT INDEX VALUES OF NEAR 100 DEGREES THIS AFTERNOON. AS A RESULT... A HEAT ADVISORY HAS BEEN ISSUED FOR NEW YORK CITY.

THE HOT WEATHER WILL BE SHORT-LIVED THOUGH. TEMPERATURES WILL COOL TO MORE SEASONABLE LEVELS ON THURSDAY AS A COLD FRONT PUSHES SOUTH OF THE REGION IN THE LATE MORNING.

AN HEAT ADVISORY FOR NEW YORK CITY IS ISSUED WHEN HIGH HUMIDITIES ARE EXPECTED TO COMBINE WITH HOT TEMPERATURES TO MAKE IT FEEL LIKE IT IS 100 DEGREES OR GREATER. PERSONS IN THE ADVISORY AREA ARE ADVISED TO AVOID PROLONGED WORK IN THE SUNSHINE... OR IN POORLY VENTILATED AREAS. ALSO... KEEP PLENTY OF LIQUIDS ON HAND AND TRY TO STAY IN AN AIR CONDITIONED ENVIRONMENT.

CHILDREN... THE ELDERLY AND PEOPLE WITH CHRONIC AILMENTS ARE USUALLY THE FIRST TO SUFFER FROM THE HEAT. HEAT EXHAUSTION... CRAMPS... OR IN EXTREME CASES HEAT STROKE CAN RESULT FROM PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO THESE CONDITIONS. FRIENDS... RELATIVES... OR NEIGHBORS SHOULD CHECK ON PEOPLE WHO MAY BE AT RISK.

DRINK LOTS OF WATER OR OTHER NON-ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES... WEAR LIGHT COLORED LIGHT WEIGHT CLOTHES... AND IF POSSIBLE... SPEND MORE TIME IN AIR CONDITIONED OR WELL VENTILATED PLACES....


Ok... "near 100 degrees".  I won't deny that's damn hot, but... heat advisory?  It's not that hot.  And what's with the all-caps?  Sheesh.
