945 AM PDT Mon Aug 6 2018


The National Weather Service in Pendleton has issued an Excessive
Heat Watch…which is in effect from Wednesday morning through
Thursday evening and added the Washington Blue Mountains to the
watch area.

* TEMPERATURES…Afternoon high temperatures will climb to between
the mid to upper 90s the Washington Blue Mountains.

* TIMING…The hottest times of the day will between 10 AM until 8
PM. There will be little relief from the heat at night with
temperatures falling only briefly into mainly mid 50s in the
higher meadows and 60s in the river bottoms by morning on both
Wednesday and Thursday. The warmest temperatures at night will
be along the mid slopes where there will be a thermal belt of
warmer air.

* 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. Remember to check the back seat
of your automobile to be certain children or pets are not left
in a very very hot environment due to this heat, even if you are
parked in the shade.


An Excessive Heat Watch means that a prolonged period of
dangerously hot temperatures will be possible. The hot
temperatures will create a dangerous situation in which heat
illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-
conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives
and neighbors.
