Expect the heat and humidity to continue to keep its grip on Rutherford County through the week.
The National Weather Service reports dangerous heat index values of 100 and higher are possible.
There are chances of showers and thunderstorms, which could reduce temperatures, if only briefly!
As a result, you are urged to take necessary precaution. If you are outdoors, than drink plenty of fluids, take rests in the shade and seek medical attention if the symptoms of heat stroke occur.
Additionally, check on the young and the elderly as they are the most vulnerable to the heat. Also, do not leave children unattended in vehicles.
The weather pattern may change later next week resulting in a more substantial break from the hot and humid conditions. But until then, find a cool spot!
