Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Take extra precautions, if you work or spend time outside.
Shelter yourself from the hot sun if possible and schedule
strenuous physical work outside to the early morning or evening
hours. Wear light colored, loose fitting clothing if possible.
Remain hydrated and drink plenty of water. Know the signs and
symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

An excessive heat warning means that a prolonged period of
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.

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned
room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and
neighbors.

... Weather radar in San Joaquin Valley gets upgrade...

June 21, 2017

The weather radar used by the National Weather Service forecast
office in Hanford will be down for approximately five days.
The radar should return to service during the day on Saturday,
24th of June. Technicians will continue to install important
technological upgrades during this period. While the work on the
WSR-88D was scheduled during a time when the impacts due to
weather will be minimal, other radars and observation system have
been utilized to maintain situational awareness for any potential
impacts to office operations.

During the outage, radar coverage is available from adjacent
radar sites, including kdax Sacramento, kmux Monterey, kvbx
vandenberg, keyx Edwards AFB.

A crew will install a new signal processor, which replaces
obsolete technology, improves processing speed and data quality,
provides added functionality, and supports it security.

This is the first of four major upgrades, known as service life
extension projects, planned in the next five years to replace and
refurbish major components of the 20 year old wsr-88ds and to keep
the radars operational into the 2030s. The 150 million dollar
investment is being made by the three organizations that use these
radars, noaa's National Weather Service, United States Air Force,
and federal aviation administration. The other service life
extension projects include refurbishing the transmitter, pedestal,
and equipment shelters.

The tri-agency radar operations center, which supports the
radars, estimates it will take about 10 months to upgrade the
signal processor on all 159 operational wsr-88ds.
