Grand Forks, ND — In this part of the country, our winters are long, spring is short and inconsistent, and when summer hits it hits hard. Well summer is officially here and its wasting no time warming up as temps today and this weekend are expected to be in the mid to upper 90s. That type of heat so sudden will certainly make anyone feel uncomfortable. Greg Gust with the National Weather Service in Grand Forks encourages people who may be spending a significant amount of time outdoors to hydrate as much as possible and be careful for heat exhaustion.

Gust says you can also protect yourself from the sun by simply wearing a hat and loose fitting, breathable clothing. Signs of heat exhaustion include heavy sweating, cold, pale, and clammy skin, nausea or vomiting, muscle cramps, tiredness or weakness, dizziness, and headaches.
