PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Hazy, hot and humid conditions continue throughout the Philadelphia region.

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for Philadelphia and the surrounding communities through 8 p.m. Monday.

Forecasters say temperatures in the mid 90s will combine with humidity to make it feel like it is more than 100 degrees.

People are urged to avoid strenuous activity if possible, watch for signs of heat exhaustion, wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing and drink plenty of water.

Officials ask people to check on older friends and relatives; others at risk include those with chronic medical conditions, pregnant women, and small children.
