if the line holds together, a few of the stronger storms could 
produce gusty winds and small hail.

continue through the upcoming week. Heat index values could reach
100 degrees by the end of the week. Because of how early in the

precautions for heat illness. These include taking frequent breaks
if working outdoors, wearing lightweight and loose-fitting 
clothing and drinking plenty of water.
