By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Heat advisory and excessive heat warnings have been issued for Southern Idaho Monday and Monday night for Southern Idaho. You can find all those warnings and advisories here on You can find out how hot it is going to be on our KMVT Weather page.

Heat advisories and excessive heat warnings are issued when we can see an extended period of hot temperatures. These hot temperatures create a situation where heat related illnesses such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke is possible. These are warnings that we do not experience very often here in Southern Idaho, in fact, over the last five years, we’ve only had 4 or 5 of these issued by the National Weather Service.
