According to WILX News 10, Your Breaking News and Weather Authority, temperatures are going to be reaching the mid 90's this weekend and anyone outside should be cautious.

Heat exhaustion and heat stroke are two serious concerns during these hot days.  Heat exhaustion is how the body responds to losing water from sweating.

People should avoid doing any strenuous activity like running, playing sports, outside construction, or landscaping.

The most important time to avoid going outside is between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. when the sun is at its strongest.

Heat stroke is the most serious of any heat related illness, which causes the body's temperature to overheat to 104 degrees or more.

When someone experiences a heat stroke they often stop sweating which means their body can't get rid of excessive heat.
