Excessive heat warning set to expire Wednesday night

An excessive heat warning that has blanketed the county the past several days is set to expire at 7 p.m. tonight.

Temperatures at the New Century Air Base reached 111 degrees Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. While temperatures will generally be lower Wednesday, anyone with outdoor activities planned should still use caution. It's not likely the area will see triple digits, but heat exhaustion is still possible for those working outside.

People with outdoor plans should wear loose fitting clothing and drink plenty of water.
