Dangerous heat on the way

The National Weather Service has issued a Heat Advisory for San Diego in effect from 10 a.m. Monday, Aug. 26 through 10 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 30. A Heat Advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected which will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible.

Expect excessive heat Sunday through Wednesday. High pressure aloft over the Great Basin will bring warming with well above average high temperatures. Slight cooling is possible for the latter part of the week.

High temperatures are expected from the 90s to 102 for inland areas, the nearby higher coastal terrain and the mesas for Monday and Tuesday with slight cooling on Wednesday.

Those working or spending time outdoors, the elderly, children and those unaccustomed to excessive heat will be most susceptible to dangerous heat illness. 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.

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.
