The Marshall County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) has issued a heat advisory until 8 p.m. Friday. Temperature highs are expected to reach the mid to upper 90's across the area with heat index topping out in the 100 to 105 degree range.
The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Stay out of the sun as much as possible, take frequent breaks if you must be outside, drink plenty of water, and know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
PLYMOUTH â€” Plymouth Head Volleyball Coach Doug West believes his team is turning a corner.
Thursdayâ€™s Northern Lakes Conference opener bore him out.

PLYMOUTH â€” An unwanted theme has been developing for the Rockies so far this season.
They play solidly for most of a game but wind up giving up goals in spurts during short breakdowns that ultimately cost them the game.
Such was the case Thursday as Plymouth lost a 2-0 Northern Lakes Conference decision to visiting Goshen on the Rockiesâ€™ home pitch at Kindt Soccerplex.
Itâ€™s not Morgan Ucenyâ€™s loss inÂ her world championship race that had folks around the Plymouth area all upset Thursday morning.
Itâ€™s knowing that she neverÂ gotÂ a chance to win.
Uceny, a 2003 Plymouth High School graduate,Â became entangled with another runner and fell to theÂ ground with 1Â˝ laps remaining in the womenâ€™s 1500-meter final at the IAAF World Track & Field Championships inÂ Daegu, South Korea.
SheÂ got up and eventually finished a distant 10th, jogging across the finish line.
