and 115 to 121 in Death Valley. Lows will generally be 75 to 85.

* Impacts... heat related illnesses such as heat exhaustion and heat
stroke will be possible. Temperatures were below normal for the

People most vulnerable include those who are spending lots of time
outdoors... those who do not have air conditioning... Young
children... the elderly... and those with chronic ailments.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

An excessive heat warning means that a period of dangerously hot
temperatures will occur... which will create a dangerous situation
in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of water... 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.

To reduce risk during outdoor work... the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in
shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat
should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an
emergency... call 9 1 1.

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.
