Heat advisory extended again
The National Weather Service has extended its heat advisory for the second time this week. The heat advisory is now in effect until 10 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 2.
In addition, Scripps Ranch High School will have a minimum day on Friday, Sept. 1 due to the high temperatures. All other public schools in Scripps Ranch will be dismissed at their regular times Friday.
Expect excessive heat through the end of the week. High pressure aloft over the Great Basin will continue very hot weather through Saturday. Temperatures will lower a few degrees next week, but will remain above average.
A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is expected which will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors.
Those working or spending time outdoors, the elderly, children and those unaccustomed to excessive heat will be most susceptible to dangerous heat illness. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstance.
