Temperatures above 100 degrees are forecasted through Tuesday, Sept. 28. People should take precautions, especially those who are sensitive to the heat. When temperatures are high, prolonged sun exposure may cause dehydration, heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke. Never leave children, elderly people, or pets unattended in vehicles, even with the windows cracked or opened. Tips for beating the heat include: wearing light, loose-fitting, light-colored clothing; drinking water or electrolyte-replacing sports drinks often; staying in an air-conditioned area; and avoiding unnecessary exertion during peak sun hours.
