Extreme heat is expected to descend on the Brainerd lakes area, with heat indices around 100 degrees on Sunday and Monday, June 19-20.

Temperatures in the 90s paired with dew points in the 60s will cause the high heat, according to the National Weather Service in Duluth.

Monday is expected to be the hottest day of the week.

The hot temperatures can be dangerous to groups sensitive to heat. Stay hydrated, limit strenuous activities and keep cool in the shade or with air conditioning, the weather service advises.

This means people should limit outdoor exercise.

The WBGT takes into account temperature, humidity, wind speed, sun angle and cloud cover.
