A strong upper level high, combined with less smoke than expected, will result in very hot temperatures today and Friday. Some of these will be record or near-record temperatures.

HEAT ADVISORY NOW IN EFFECT FRIDAY FROM NOON TO MIDNIGHT

  • TEMPERATURE: High temperatures from 95 to 103.
  • IMPACTS: Increased risk of heat related illness and injury, especially for sensitive groups and those spending time outdoors during the afternoon and early evening.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected. The hot temperatures will create a 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.

Take extra precautions, if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose-fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air-conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency, call 9 1 1.
