SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A heat advisory remains in effect from noon to 8 p.m. Tuesday.  

The heat advisory is in effect for these Georgia Counties: Bryan, Effingham, Liberty, Bulloch, Screven, Candler, Evans, Tattnall, Long, McIntosh. It includes these South Carolina counties: Hampton, Jasper, Beaufort.

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible.

Hazardous heat index values are likely again this afternoon into early this evening, according to the National Weather Service.

Heat index values are expected to be 105 to 110 degrees, according to NWS. Heat index values will be locally higher for brief periods over the coastal counties as the humidity increases with the passage of a late day sea breeze.

Those outside are urged to drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioning room, stay out of sunshine and check in on relatives and neighbors.
