Stay Cool and Hydrated as Very Hot Temperatures Expected

June 28, 2013

The National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting a significant heat wave over the weekend lasting into next week as a high pressure weather system dominates the Western United States. This will result in very hot temperatures to much of California. Today marks the beginning of the high-heat wave that will bring widespread triple digit temperatures in the valley at least until next Wednesday, making this a six-day heat wave.

Temperatures across inland Northern California, including mountain areas, will increase a degree or two each day until the peak of this event. Both daytime highs and overnight lows will range from 10 to 15 degrees above normal, prompting an Excessive Heat Watch between Sunday and Wednesday.

The Placer County Office of Emergency Services will monitor forecasts daily, paying particular attention to conditions that state public health officials have deemed potentially dangerous to the most vulnerable. 

Heat can be very dangerous so it is important to be prepared and take safety measures. Dangerous heat impacts can include: dehydration, heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, and hyperthermia. If you see any person or livestock/pets suffering from these symptoms, get help immediately. Limited exposure to the heat is extremely important for sensitive groups that include the elderly and small children.

Pets should be kept inside and special care should be given to keep livestock cool and hydrated.

For up-to-date forecasts and tips on protecting yourself, your family and your community from the dangers of extreme heat, visit the National Weather Service Northern California website at NWS or DEALING WITH HEAT. The California Department of Public Health website also provides heat-related information at  EXTREME HEAT.
