More heat is expected in South Florida on Wednesday. So, if you’re going to be doing outdoor activities this afternoon, remember to stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade.

Today’s highs in Miami can reach 95°F, but with heat indexes between 105°F and 110°F.

The heat will continue over the next few days, so some heat alerts may be needed.

Rain also begins to appear this Wednesday, just to open our rainy period, with some scattered showers and possibly strong storms mainly near Lake Okeechobee.

Tomorrow, Thursday, the probability of rain will be slightly higher, around 40%, while also ensuring heat.

Tips for dealing with the heat

The Red Cross and the National Weather Service (NWS) have a series of recommendations for combating hot days and avoiding health problems.

  • The general basic recommendation is to hydrate, dress cool, and protect yourself from the sun if you will be doing outdoor activities.
  • One of the first warnings concerns the vehicle, because the heat in a car can be deadly. “Never leave children or pets in your car. The temperature inside a car can quickly reach 120 degrees,” the Red Cross notes.
  • It is also recommended to avoid excessive consumption of drinks containing caffeine or alcohol.
  • If you don’t have air conditioning, seek relief from the heat during the hottest hours of the day in places like libraries, theaters, and malls.
  • It is also advisable to avoid extreme temperature changes. Avoid exercising outdoors during the hottest hours of the day.
  • Take frequent breaks if you work outside, frequently check that pets are not overheated, and make sure they have plenty of fresh water and shade.
