It’s just saying that “Hey, it going to be very warm outside.” With the humidity it’s going to push those feels like temperatures to the 105 to 107 degree range. So if you’re going to be out and about follow the usual safety procedures, stay hydrated, drink lots of water, where that lightweight light colored, loose clothing. Most of all just listen to your body.
