Hot temperatures and extreme heat return to our area this week and into the weekend. Freshen up your knowledge and awareness of signs of heat exhaustion. As you prepare for the holiday festivities with friends and family, here are warning signs to help you recognize when you have had too much fun in the sun.

According to the CDC, symptoms such as dizziness, headache, fast and weak pulse, heavy sweating, nausea, tiredness, and weakness could be signs of heat exhaustion.
