[ARCHIVED] Excessive Heat Watch in Effect

The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Watch for Friday afternoon until at least Monday evening. The Weather Service predicts that this weather pattern will significantly increase the potential for heat-related illnesses, particularly for those working or participating in outdoor activities.

WHAT: A period of hot weather with record-breaking heat.

WHERE: Much of Western Washington.

WHEN: From Friday afternoon through Monday evening.

IMPACTS: Unusually hot weather over much of Western Washington will significantly increase the potential for heat related illnesses, particularly for those working or participating in outdoor activities.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS: Overnight lows during this time frame will only cool off into the 60s and lower 70s which is also unusual in Western Washington. 

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS: 

  • Monitor the latest forecasts and warnings for updates on this situation. 
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Seek air-conditioned areas if you can, use a fan, stay out of the sun
  • Check up on relatives and neighbors. 
  • 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.
