Potential heat impacts include:
- Moderate to very high risk for heat related illness to entire population.
- Hot temperatures can lead to heat stress or exhaustion. This is especially true for elderly and at-risk populations as well as those engaging in outdoor activities.
- Heat in vehicles poses extreme dangers. Never leave pets or people in a parked vehicle for any reason, for any length of time. Beat the heat, check the back seat and look before you lock.
- Increased fire weather concerns are also likely because of hot and dry conditions.
