CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - These high temperatures are no joke. As Wyomingites, we are acclimatized to the high altitude, but certainly not the high temperatures.

These high temperatures we will see this week can cause lots of health issues.

Dehydration is one of the most common heat related illnesses seen during heatwaves like we are seeing.

Common symptoms of dehydration range from headaches and fatigue, all the way to collapsing, heat strokes, and death.

Try to stay indoors, especially if you are susceptible to the heat. But if you must go out, bring and drink plenty of water, wear long but light clothing, stay away from caffeine and alcohol, and wear sunscreen. Did we mention staying hydrated? That is they key to avoiding dehydration.

If you start feeling dehydration symptoms, its because you are dehydrated and should really get inside, and drink some cold water until you have recovered.

Stay safe, and hydrated out there.
