... Heat advisory in effect from noon Saturday to 9 PM PDT
The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect from noon Saturday to 9 PM PDT
* Temperature... highs in the upper 80s to low 90s Saturday and
low to mid 90s Sunday. Lows will fall into the 50s to around 60,
except low to mid 60s in the warmer Metro areas.
* Timing... Saturday through Sunday.
* Impacts... the elderly, youth, and those in poor health without
air conditioning will be particularly vulnerable to the heat.
Never leave children, pets, or the elderly unattended in a parked
vehicle under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
Drownings tend to occur during hot spells in western Washington.
Area rivers and lakes can be dangerously cold for swimming this
time of year. Most rivers are running high and swift due to Spring
snowmelt. Hypothermia and drowning due to cold water shock can
occur in area waters this time of year.
