HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - After seeing some extreme heat across the area on Wednesday with many areas setting new record highs, we’ll do it all again on Thursday as temperatures could be even hotter for some locations today. Before we dive into the details of the forecast, please make sure to take care of yourself and your neighbors today. When looking at all weather related fatalities in the United States, on an annual basis, heat tops the list. It’s easy to overdo it on normal days, but days like today (and yesterday) it’s even easier to push yourself into heat exhaustion or even heat stroke. Vehicles can quickly turn into death traps as temperatures inside could become deadly in just minutes in heat like we’ll see today, so anyone left inside a hot vehicle could easily become ill in just a matter of minutes. Not that anyone likely needs any reminders at this point, but the images below are some helpful tips on how to beat the heat!
