NEW HANOVER COUNTY—The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory to southeastern North Carolina in effect from 11 a.m. this morning until 8 p.m. this evening.

National Weather Service (NWS) predicts heat index values will likely exceed 105 degrees each afternoon through Thursday, and may approach 110 degrees briefly on Wednesday.

This advisory spans from much of the Carolina Coast, including Myrtle Beach, Southport, and Wilmington.

During this period, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends
scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air-conditioned environments. In addition, OSHA recommends completing as much outdoor work as possible during the early morning or late evening hours.

The advisory also states that outdoor animals should have adequate shade and fresh water. When possible, bring pets and livestock into cooler dwellings during the period of highest temperatures.
