Excessive Heat Watch
Issued: 8:24 PM PDT Oct. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Excessive heat watch remains in effect from Monday morning
through Tuesday evening...
... Wind Advisory is cancelled...

The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has cancelled
the Wind Advisory.

* Temperatures... 100-106 degrees on Monday and Tuesday. Overnight
lows in the upper 60s and 70s. Isolated lower 80s possible in
the foothills and mountains.

* Impacts... the very high temperatures create a dangerous
situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Temperatures
inside vehicles, even if the windows are partially open, can
quickly rise to life-threatening levels.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Take extra precautions Monday through Tuesday if you work or
spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous
activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and
symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight
and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of
water.

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. Heat stroke is an
emergency - call 911.
