THE HEAT WAVE IS HERE!
An extended period of very hot weather is expected Friday through Sunday. However the prolonged heat wave could potentially extend well into next week. Locations along the immediate coast will likely escape the worst of the heat, but many of the inland areas may see record-setting temperatures on multiple days. Combined with low humidity levels and very dry fuel across the region, this high heat will also bring an extended period of elevated fire danger to interior sections of southwestern California. Preparations for the hot weather should begin now. Adjust your work periods to the early morning, ensuring cooling systems function properly, and checking on the elderly, pets and livestock, should be top of mind. And whatever happens don’t leave anyone or anything with a pulse in the car during this heat wave unattended.
