   A heat wave is taking hold of the metro-area and reminding us that it's August in St. Louis.  

   The National Weather Services has issued a heat advisory for the St. Louis area from noon Tuesday until 7:00 Saturday evening.  

   Temperatures are expected to rise into the mid and upper 90's, with heat indices around 100 over the next several days.  There will be little relief at night, especially in the urban heat island of St. Louis.  

   At least a few schools are closing early today as a precaution.  They include the Legacy Christian Academy in Caseyville which will close at noon and St. John the Baptist in Villa Ridge which plans to close at 11:30.  Also, all schools in the Bunker Hill District are closing at 2 p.m. today.

   And the extreme heat is forcing some high school football teams to change game times this weekend. Hazelwood School District officials rescheduled games for Hazelwood Centrals and Hazelwood East. Both games have been moved from 1 PM to 10 AM. 

   Extra precaution is warranted, especially for those spending time outside.  OSHA recommends drinking extra water and taking frequent breaks in the shade or in air conditioning.  

   For information about cooling centers, call the United Way by dialing 2-1-1 from any land line phone.  Or call 1-800-427-4626.
