Heat Index Layer Added

by Rory Groves        July 14, 2010  |  11:51 am  |  Category: Latest News | Tips & Tricks

Rounding out the Summer Heat Collection, the new Heat Index layers tell you the summary of "How Hot It Feels" outside.

  • White: Below 80°F - Not significant risk for heat-related illnesses.
  • Yellow: 80°F to 100°F - Caution: fatigue is possible with prolonged exposure and activity. Continuing activity could result in heat cramps.
  • Orange: 100°F to 110°F - Extreme caution: heat cramps, and heat exhaustion are possible. Continuing activity could result in heat stroke
  • Red: 110°F to 120°F - Danger: heat cramps, and heat exhaustion are likely; heat stroke is probable with continued activity
  • Pink: 120°F or higher - Extreme danger: heat stroke is imminent

This is critical information for anyone participating in summer-time activities: sports, camping, hiking, etc. Even keeping tabs on elderly friends and family members, especially at risk from heat-related illnesses.

The Heat Index layers can be found under the Surface Weather category in the Layer Browser.
