... Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 11 PM PDT
Friday...

* temperatures... 105 to 110 degrees.

* Timing... through Friday evening.

strenuous physical work outside to the early morning or evening
hours. Wear light colored, loose fitting clothing if possible.

dangerously hot temperatures will occur. Prolonged exposure to
extreme heat can lead to heat exhaustion or heat stroke.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. Look before you lock! The
temperature inside of a car on a hot day can climb to lethal
levels in a matter of minutes.
