The National Weather Service in Sacramento has issued a heat
advisory, which is in effect from noon Saturday to 9 PM PDT
Sunday. This replaces the excessive heat watch.

* Temperature... high temperatures around 105 to 110. Overnight
lows around 70 to 75.

* Impacts... long outdoor exposure will increase chances for heat
related illness, especially for sensitive groups and people
without access to ac. Heat stress possible for livestock with
limited relief from the heat overnight. Area waterways are still
cold increasing the risk for hypothermia and water rescues.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A heat advisory means that a period of hot temperatures is
expected, which will create a situation in which heat illnesses
are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air- conditioned
room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and
neighbors.

   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
possible and drink plenty of water.

   To reduce risk during outdoor work, the occupational safety
and health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest
breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome
by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat
stroke is an emergency, call 9 1 1.
