Heat advisory issued as parts of Florida face sweltering conditions over Labor Day weekend

Hot may be an understatement.

Several counties across Florida are under a heat advisory on Friday.

"Sweltering heat, especially north and west of Orlando metro," says FOX 35 meteorologist Kristin Giannas. "We do have these heat advisories in effect so Sumter, Marion, Levy, up through Putnam and Flagler County. Expect a heat index up to 110-degrees from noon to 6 p.m." 


This is dangerous heat so make sure you are protecting yourself by staying hydrated and wearing light, loose clothing. Also, be sure to not leave kids or pets in the car and check on your elderly neighbors.
