Heat index values over 90 expected this weekend

The Door Peninsula is set to sweat through the year’s warmest weather so far, especially Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Heat index values will be in the mid to upper-90’s, except by the lakeshore. Provider Elyse Engebose from Bellin Health says that the best course of action is to get outside early in the day or as the sun begins to set to avoid heat exhaustion. Warning signs include the following.


Heat exhaustion can lead to emergency conditions such as heat stroke. Engebose says that by the time you feel thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. She suggests that you drink plenty of fluids while avoiding caffeinated beverages.
