Hot temperatures continue to be the main weather feature at Watkins Glen this weekend. In fact, the National Weather Service in Binghamton has issued a Heat Advisory for both Saturday and Sunday. The heat and humidity will push the heat index between 95 and 100 on Saturday, and between 100 and 105 on Sunday. At these heat index levels, heat illnesses and heat stroke are possible if precautions are not taken. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in shade as much as possible, and wear light weight and loose fitting clothing. Be aware of the signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.
