LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - Tuesday is more than a hot June day, it’s a First Alert Weather Day due to the potentially dangerous heat and humidity.

“A potentially dangerous combination of high heat and humidity will settle into Mid-Michigan this afternoon and continue for Wednesday,” News 10 meteorologist Justin Bradford said. “High temperatures today will climb to the low-to-mid 90′s. High humidity will push feels like temps or heat index values into the upper 90′s to near 100º.”

As body temperatures rise to dangerous levels, heat exhaustion can advance to heat stroke, which can be deadly. Headache, nausea and an increased heart rate are all symptoms the body overheating. In an emergency, like for those who are in homes without air conditioning or that are going through a power outage, local cooling centers are free to any who need them.
