Heat Warnings This Weekend

Creative Commons

Parts of Kentucky are under a heat advisory.  
WAVE 3 meteorologist Kevin Harned says while heat advisories aren't uncommon, there aren't many year to year.  
Harned says heat advisories make it easier to overheat, as perspiration rises off the skin faster than usual.  
Taking breaks if you work outside, drinking plenty of water and limiting your exposure to the sun are all strongly advised for the next few days.  
Harned warns the father west you go, the hotter the temperatures will be. Along and east of I-65 may feature some storms to cool things down.  
The heat advisory will be in effect until around 7:00 Central Saturday evening.
