The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued an
Excessive Heat Watch, which is in effect from Tuesday morning
through Wednesday afternoon.
* HIGH TEMPERATURES...Coastal areas 83-93. Interior 98-108.
* IMPACTS...Increased potential for serious heat-related
illnesses, especially for the young and elderly, those
performing outdoor activities, as well as those without access
to air conditioning. Increased potential for power outages.
Never, ever, leave people or pets in enclosed vehicles, even for
a short period of time.
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 heat
stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when
