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

* temperature... high temperatures this afternoon and Friday
afternoon will be in the upper 80s to 90s over the interior of
western Washington from Seattle southward. Low temperatures with
also be quite mild with urban areas dropping only into the upper
50s to mid 60s.

* Timing... this afternoon and evening... and Friday afternoon and

* 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 as it impairs judgment.
