National Weather Services Issues Heat Advisory for Thursday and Friday

0

The National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for the next two days and will likely be extended into the weekend where we may see triple digits.

According to the National Weather Service, the heat advisory is in effect from:

  • Thursday: 11:00 am to 7:00 pm
  • Friday, 11:00 am to 7:00 pm

The east bay is expected to see temperatures between 93 degrees to 100 and some areas in the Bay Area as high as 103 degrees.

This will result in potential heat related illness such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

They remind the community that a “heat advisory” means that a period of hot temperatures are expected and that with hot temperatures, it will create a situation in which heat illness is possible. The public is encouraged to drink plenty of fluids and stay in an air conditioned room and out of the sun. Be sure to check up on relatives and neighbors.

Tips:

  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Stay in air conditioned rooms
  • Stay out of the sun
  • Check up on relatives and neighbors
  • don’t leave kids or pets in unattended vehicles
