Watches & Warnings

Heat Advisory
Issued: 9:18 AM PDT Aug. 24, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Heat advisory in effect from noon Thursday to 8 PM PDT Friday...

The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a heat
advisory... for the interior of western Washington from Seattle
southward... which is in effect from noon Thursday to 8 PM PDT
Friday.

* Temperature... high temperatures Thursday afternoon and Friday
afternoon will be in the upper 80s to mid 90s over the interior
of western Washington from Seattle southward.

* Timing... Thursday afternoon and early evening and Friday
afternoon and early evening.

* Impacts... hot weather increases the potential for dehydration and
heat related illnesses. The elderly... the Young... and those who
work or exercise outdoors will be the most vulnerable to heat
related illnesses if extra precautions are not taken.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

Take extra precautions 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 stroke.
Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink
plenty of water.

If you plan to go boating to escape the heat... wear an approved life
jacket. Drowning is the cause of most boating fatalities. Also...
avoid alcohol because it impairs judgment.




Fire Weather Warning
Issued: 2:39 PM PDT Aug. 24, 2016 – National Weather Service

... Red flag warning in effect from 10 am to 10 PM PDT Thursday
for moderate breezes and low humidity...

The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a red flag
warning... which is in effect from 10 am to 10 PM PDT Thursday.
The Fire Weather Watch is no longer in effect.

* Affected area... fire weather zone 650... including
Forks... Quillayute... and Ellis Mountain. Fire weather zones
654... .655 and 657... including the I-5 corridor from Seattle on
south through Lewis County and the Kitsap peninsula.

* Wind... north or northeast wind 8 to 14 mph with gusts to 20 mph.

* Humidity... 20-30 percent.

* Timing... the combination of sustained winds in excess of 10-12
mph and humidity below 30 percent will last for 3 to 5 hours
from late morning through early evening on Thursday.

* Impacts... a combination of a moderate breeze... low relative
humidity and warm temperatures can contribute to rapid rates
of spread and downwind spotting on any fires that get
started. This applies to grassy roadside locations as well as
forested areas.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now, or will shortly. A combination of a
moderate breeze... low relative humidity... and warm temperatures
can contribute to rapid rates of spread and downwind spotting on
existing fires.
