[ARCHIVED] Excessive Heat Warning in Effect

The National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Warning from 10am Saturday to 11pm Monday. 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: Dangerously hot temperatures of 98 to 103 likely, with temperatures locally 103 to 108 are possible. Overnight low temperatures mostly 65 to 70 degrees, but few spots such as the Columbia River Gorge and the Portland-Vancouver metro area may only cool down to the middle 70s Saturday and Sunday nights.

WHERE: All of the lower elevations of southwest Washington and  northwest Oregon, except for those along the coast.

WHEN: Saturday through Monday evening.

IMPACTS: Extreme heat will significantly increase the  potential for heat related illnesses, particularly for those  working or participating in outdoor activities.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS: The hot daytime temperatures, combined  with warm overnight lows, will result in high heat risk and  heat related stress.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS: 

  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Stay in an air-conditioned room, 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.

  • Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible. 
  • 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.
