What is a Heat Wave?

A Heat Wave is a prolonged period of excessive heat and humidity. The National Weather Service steps up its procedures to alert the public during these periods of excessive heat and humidity.

The Heat Index is a number in degrees Fahrenheit that explains how hot it really feels (much like wind chill for cold weather) when the relative humidity is added to the actual air temperature.
