* WHERE…Interior portions of the San Francisco Bay Area and
interior portions of the Central Coast.
* WHEN…From 10 AM this morning to 9 PM PDT this evening.
* IMPACTS…Heat related illnesses such as heat exhaustion and
heat stroke can occur due to prolonged exposure to hot
temperatures. People most vulnerable include those who are
spending a significant amount of time outdoors, those without

chronic ailments. Additional societal impacts due to people
seeking relief by traveling from hotter inland areas to cooler
* ADDITIONAL DETAILS…Daytime temperatures for inland areas are
forecast to range from the 90s to 102 this afternoon. The San
Francisco Bay shoreline and Santa Cruz County coast could warm
to the mid 80s and lower 90s on Wednesday. For San Francisco
itself, the Downtown/Bayside could warm to the lower 80s while
the Pacific coastal side will peak in the lower 70s. Other
coastal areas should remain relatively mild (70s to around 80)
compared to inland areas given light onshore flow. Significant
temperature differences from the coast to a few miles inland
could drive an excessive number of persons towards the coast
to seek relief from the heat. Individuals are advised to check
with local authorities on potential closures of parks and
beaches and be aware of any special requirements for visiting
such areas. Overnight lows will range from the upper 50s to
mid 60s, and even 70s in the hills, which may limit the amount
of typical overnight relief from the heat.
Instruction: Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out
of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young
children, disabled or elderly adults, and pets should never be
left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.
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 lightweight and loose fitting clothing when
possible. 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.
