...Very Warm and Muggy Conditions Today and this Weekend...
A very warm and muggy air-mass can be expected Today through the
weekend. The combination of very warm temperatures and high
humidity will produce heat indices across the valley in the
middle 90s to near 100 degrees today, upper 90s to near 103
degrees Saturday, and 90s for Sunday.
The heat and muggy conditions will result in an increased risk for
heat-related illnesses, especially during the afternoon hours.
Please take necessary precautions and preparedness actions. 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.
Besides, the heat scattered mainly afternoon and evening
thunderstorms can be expected. Strong gusty winds, heavy rains,
and frequent lightning can be expected with the stronger storms.
