Officials Urge to Stay Cool as Heat Wave Envelops SoCal

Officials Urge to Stay Cool as Heat Wave Envelops SoCal

Vallejo's projected high Friday is 85 degrees, dipping to 81 Saturday before jumping to 88 Sunday and then dropping to 80 Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

The official excessive heat warning is in effect from noon Sunday to 8 p.m. Tuesday.

An excessive heat warning is in effect for Oklahoma County through 9 p.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service.

EMSA officials reported receiving 16 heat-related calls in Oklahoma City since Wednesday, including a 71-year-old man who became ill while trying to move a auto and was taken to a local hospital on Friday.

Temperatures, especially across Riverside County, could potentially hit the 120-degree mark, mainly in the deserts.

People looking to escape the heat can head out to The Bay, where temperatures will be in the mid-70s in San Francisco, or towards the high country, where temperatures in South Lake Tahoe will be in the low-80s.


Special attention must be given to new employees who have not been acclimatized to working under hot conditions, as they are particularly vulnerable to heat illness, CalOSHA says.

Phoenix will also be within reach of tying the record for consecutive days of high temperatures greater than 115 degrees, which is four days set in 1990.

It said scorching temperatures will combine with atmospheric inversions, which trap pollution near the ground, to cause persistently poor air quality at least through early next week.

"The very high temperatures could create a risky situation in which heat related illnesses are possible", the advisory read.

Many regions of the state will be reaching temperatures in the triple digits. "Extreme heat such as this is not just an inconvenience, it can be unsafe and even deadly, but we can protect ourselves, our families, and our neighbors if we take steps to remain cool and hydrated".
