A large ridge of high pressure continues to dominate our weather pattern, keeping the AV very hot and dry. An EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING remains in place through Sunday night.
High pressure breaks down a bit by the middle of next week, finally bringing some relief from the triple digit heat, but it remains very hot this weekend.
Be mindful of your outdoor activities! With the heat, dry conditions and breezy southwest winds, it won't take much for a fire to spread or grow rapidly.
Keep these safety tips in mind:
leave kids or pets in a parked car, not even for a minute....Look
before you lock!
--Drink plenty of water
--Apply generous amounts of sunscreen
--Wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothes
--Wear a wide-brimmed hat
--Take frequent breaks
--Make sure to keep the pets and elderly protected and safe
