  • Excessive Heat Warning issued September 02 at 3:04PM PDT until September 04 at 11:00PM PDT by NWS
  • Effective: Saturday, September 2, 2017 at 3:04 p.m.

  • ...Very Hot Temperatures Expected Through Labor Day Weekend...
    .High pressure will persist over the region this weekend and
    temperatures will warm to values of 20 to 25 degrees above normal
    for this time of year. These hot temperatures are expected to
    continue through at least the Labor Day holiday. Relief even at
    night will be limited, as lows are expected to lower drop into
    the mid 60s to lower 70s for much of the area. While smoke from
    area wildfires will keep temperatures less hot than they might
    otherwise be, it will also pose a health problem for those
    seeking relief by opening windows, or attempting any outdoor
    activities.
