The Heat Is On!

The Heat Is On!

The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning for the Mother Lode, The Sierra Nevada and the Northern San Joaquin Valley, effective from Noon today until 8 PM Monday.  Widespread triple digit excessive heat is expected over the Labor Day weekend with an increasing risk for heat-related illnesses for people exposed to the hot weather.  Daytime highs will range from 108 to 113 degrees across much of the Foothills with overnight lows only in the 70’s to lower 80’s in the Foothill thermal belts.  The hottest temperatures are expected Friday and Saturday, then not quite as hot Sunday and Labor Day.  So remember to 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.  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.  And make sure your outdoor pets have clear cool water too.
