NWS Issues Heat Advisory Today For The Mother Lode

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for the Mother Lode today. A strong ridge of high pressure will bring temperatures up to around ten to fifteen degrees above average. While conditions will remain warm through the middle of the week, today is expected to be the hottest day of the week. Widespread readings of 100 to 106 degrees are likely during the afternoon, which may impact those who are more sensitive to exposure to the heat. The most vulnerable include the elderly, children, those without effective cooling systems or adequate hydration, and outdoor workers. Prolonged exposure to the hot weather may increase the chances for heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. A heat advisory means that a prolonged period of hot temperatures is expected and will create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible.
