The temperatures and the heat index values have been quite high to start the month of July in Northwest Georgia.  Highs today will return to the mid 90s with the heat indices hovering around 103, according to the National Weather Service. 

Tim Herrington, the Director of the Floyd County Emergency Management Agency, encourages all Romans to limit their time outdoors amid the current heat wave.  He recommends that you conduct outdoor activities, like mowing the lawn, during the early morning hours. 

Local recreation centers are open during regular hours as cooling stations for those who need a hit of A/C.  Herrington also suggests the mall and the Rome library as good places to catch a break from the summer heat. 

It is also imperative to stay hydrated at this time of year.  And, of course, do not leave kids or pets in hot cars, even for a little while.  Herrington says that it only takes a short amount of time for the temperatures in that car to become life-threatening. 

Herrington also exhorts the public to stay updated on any developing weather patterns in the area over the summer, as local weather conditions can often be unpredictable. 

Today’s summer heat will be accompanied by a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mostly during the afternoon; skies are otherwise expected to be partly sunny.
