Heat and humidity creating dangerous conditions in Missouri
The western half of the state and part of the St. Louis region are under heat advisories, and the Kansas City region is under an excessive heat warning. The National Weather Service says it feels like temperatures are exceeding 100-degrees in parts of the state.
This graphic from the National Weather Service illustrates what symptoms people might have if being overcome by hot and humid conditions.
Meteorologist Chris Bowman says when heat and humidity create the conditions they have today, Missourians are encouraged to avoid working outside in the afternoon
