…EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 8 PM PDT
* Temperatures…Morning lows mid-60s to lower 70s. Afternoon
highs 96-106. These values are 10-15 degrees above normal.
* Timing…through Tuesday evening.
* Impacts…Hot temperatures and limited relief overnight will
increase chances for heat related illness especially for those
without access to air conditioning. Heat stress is also
possible for livestock and outdoor pets.
An Excessive Heat Warning means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will occur. The combination of hot
temperatures and limited cooling at night will combine to create
a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink
plenty of fluids…stay in an air-conditioned room…stay out of
the sun…and check up on relatives and neighbors.
Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
