MIAMI (CBSMiami) – While fans of the Miami Heat will be white hot during Monday’s championship parade it’s the typical heat and rain in Miami that fans needed to worry about in downtown Miami.

The problem of passing showers gave the biggest initial problem and managed to delay the beginning of the parade by a half-hour.

Fans who are attending the parade will be dealing with the typical summertime conditions in Miami, heat and humidity. It’s not so much the actual air temperature that is the problem, but rather the heat index.

The air temperature is expected to top out around 89 degrees around 1 p.m. But, the Heat index will be in excess of 95 degrees for much of the parade through downtown Miami.

Multiple people passed out during last year’s parade while dealing with dehydration and other heat related problems. The best ways to avoid many of the Heat related problems include not drinking as much alcohol, saying hydrated throughout the time you’re outside and using lots of sunscreen.

Still, the crowds began gathering around the downtown area as much as two hours ahead of time to celebrate the team’s back-to-back championships. The parade will wind through much of the downtown area before ending at the AmericanAirlines Arena.

The party will then move inside for a VIP, ticketed experience. The indoor party can be seen live on cbsmiami by clicking here.
