An excessive heat warning is in effect this weekend until 8 p.m. Sunday, according to the National Weather Service. Overexposure can cause heat cramps and heat exhaustion to develop and, without intervention, can lead to heat stroke.

An Excessive Heat Warning means that a period of very hot temperatures, even by local standards, will occur. Actions should be taken to lessen the impact of the extreme heat.
Stay indoors and seek air-conditioned buildings. Drink water, more than usual, and avoid dehydrating alcoholic, sugary, or caffeinated drinks. Dress for the heat – lightweight and light-colored clothing. Eat small meals and eat more often. Monitor those with a higher vulnerability to heat, including small children. Check in on family, friends, and neighbors, especially the elderly. If engaging in outdoor activity, take longer and more frequent breaks and avoid the hottest parts of the day.  Never leave kids or pets unattended in cars.
