  • THE EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH IS NO LONGER IN EFFECT

A Heat Advisory is in effect for the foothills for Sunday through Tuesday as well.

An excessive heat warning is in effect for Oklahoma County through 9 p.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service. A less severe heat advisory for the remainder of Riverside County will extend from 11 a.m. today until 9 p.m. Wednesday. County officials also advised residents to stay in air conditioning during the hottest hours of the day, take cool showers, avoid using the oven to cook and avoid unnecessary sun exposure.

A potentially record-shattering heat wave is rolling into the Southwest U.S., threatening to bring 120-degree temperatures to parts of Arizona and California. High temperatures in those areas are predicted to reach 92 to 102 degrees over the weekend and 96 to 104 degrees Monday through Wednesday.

The high for Monday will be 101, Tuesday's high is expected to be near 105 degrees and Wednesday is expected to reach 106 degrees.

Health officials recommend people stay hydrated, limit time outside and recognize the symptoms of heat exhaustion and stroke.

People looking to escape the heat can head out to The Bay, where temperatures will be in the mid-70s in San Francisco, or towards the high country, where temperatures in South Lake Tahoe will be in the low-80s. Locally higher temperatures are possible.

Authorities also warned against leaving children, seniors or pets in parked cars, which can heat up to lethal levels in just minutes, even with a window partially open. "Extreme heat such as this is not just an inconvenience, it can be risky and even deadly, but we can protect ourselves, our families, and our neighbors if we take steps to remain cool and hydrated".

“California rules are very clear on how employers must protect their workers from heat illness, ” says Cal/OSHA Chief Juliann Sum.
