The Free Press WV

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for 10 West Virginia counties for Friday afternoon into Friday evening.

Heat Index values are expected to be in the lower 100’s due to temperatures in
the lower 90’s, and dewpoints in the lower 70’s, the Weather Service said.

The advisory will be in effect from noon until 7 p.m. for Wayne, Cabell, Mason, Jackson, Lincoln, Putnam, Kanawha, Mingo, Logan and Boone counties.

“The combination of high temperatures and high humidity will lead to an increased risk of heat related stress and illnesses,” the Weather Service said.

Those who have to work outside should take frequent breaks, meteorologists said.
