After days of soggy, wet weather, the heat is on for folks in the bluegrass state.

The National Weather Service issued some heat advisories on Friday for the western part of the state, and while central Kentucky wasn't included, people still found ways to try and beat the heat.

Pools around Lexington were packed on Friday afternoon as people anticipated what is expected to be the hottest day of the year so far.

Doctors warn people to be cautious during this heat wave.

They want to remind you to drink plenty of water or sports drinks, like Gatorade. Even if you aren't feeling thirsty, you need to drink so you can stay hydrated.

Also, wear sunscreen and a hat, if possible to protect yourself from the rays. And if you're working or playing outside, make sure to take a break in the shade about every 45 minutes.

Doctors say symptoms of Heat Exhaustion include fatigue, dizziness, fainting and a high temperature. If you have any of these symptoms, doctors say you should see a doctor to be checked out.
