CINCINNATI (AP) - National Weather Service forecasters say western Ohio and some central parts of the state will be under a weekend heat advisory.

Forecasters say hot, humid conditions will push the heat index into the 95- to 100-degree range. The advisory for Saturday stretches far enough east to include Sandusky, Columbus and Portsmouth. Cincinnati has an excessive heat warning through Sunday.

The heat could be dangerous, especially for the elderly, young children and people with chronic medical conditions. Forecasters recommend staying in the shade or air conditioning and drinking plenty of fluids.

Cincinnati’s health commissioner says heat index readings could range up to 103 degrees there.

The Cincinnati Reds say they’ll have cool rooms, misting stations and extra medical staff at this weekend’s baseball games against the Cleveland Indians.
