GRAND RAPIDS (WKZO) -- The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has declared that a heat advisory will take effect at noon today for most of the Lower Peninsula.
NWS Meteorologist Ernie Ostuno says that doesn’t mean you have to suspend all your outdoor activities, just be careful when you do.
He says extended exposure to the sun in the heat of the day could potentially have negative effects. He says as uncomfortable as it may seem today, last summer was worse.
The border counties, which are under the jurisdiction of the National Weather Service office in South Bend are not included in the advisory.
