Heat Advisory issued Monday to Tuesday

The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory for San Diego County valleys in effect from 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 26, to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28.

Temperatures from 94 to 98 locally up to 100 degrees are expected.

Hot temperatures may cause heat illnesses to occur. Drink plenty of fluids, stay out of the midday sun and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

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 lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible. 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.
