Temperatures will feel like 109 degrees today: Miami-Dade is under another heat advisory

Brace for another scorching day!

No, it’s not your imagination: it is unbearably hot in Miami right now. Every summer Miamians claim that it wasn’t this hot last year and our assumptions are finally (and unfortunately) vindicated. For the second day in a row, the National Weather Service issued a heat advisory warning until 6pm this evening for areas of inland Miami-Dade as well as southern parts of the county. Today’s heat index clocks in at 109 degrees Fahrenheit—up from yesterday’s 106. According to the report, the hot weather and humidity could potentially lead to heat-related illnesses.

Here are some precautions the NWS recommends:

  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Stay in an air-conditioned room
  • Stay out of the sun
  • Don’t leave your kids or your pets in your car unattended
  • Try to schedule your outdoor exercise early or later in the day
  • Wear lightweight and/or loose clothing to keep yourself from overheating
  • Heatstroke is an actual emergency and you should call 911 if you’re feeling faint or show signs of possible heat exhaustion.

And thanks to the massive cloud of dust from the Sahara Desert arriving this week, there’s zero chance of rain forecasted this weekend and absolutely no respite in sight.
