Stay safe! Heat safety tips for this week

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.-Hopefully all of you at home are reading this in the comfort of your air conditioning as we experience near-record temperatures this week. 

News 40 meteorologist, Darius Mack, says we’re going to see temperatures near 100 degrees.

He recommends limiting time outdoors, especially in the late mornings or early afternoon. Take frequent breaks if you must be in the sun. 

Also make sure to stay hydrated and wear sunscreen.

Mack says the last time we have seen heat like this was in 2012…so it is important to take precautions.

Temperatures are said to cool a bit this weekend, but the heat will be back again next week.
