Taking a small break this afternoon to check our weather report...I like the weather. I read it all the time. It's exciting to see the National Weather Service make a bold red "Special Statement" in our area (exciting to me anyway...)


VERY HOT WEATHER TO CONTINUE THROUGH SATURDAY...
STRONG HIGH PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE HOT WEATHER WITH NEAR RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURES THROUGH SATURDAY. TEMPERATURES WILL BE 10 TO 15 DEGREES ABOVE AVERAGE IN THE VALLEYS... MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS. COASTAL ZONES WILL BE SPARED THE MOST INTENSE HEAT DUE TO THE COOL OCEAN BREEZES EACH AFTERNOON.

AN EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING WILL BE IN EFFECT SATURDAY FOR THE INLAND VALLEYS AND THE LOWER DESERTS. A WEAK LOW PRESSURE TROUGH WILL BRING SLIGHTLY COOLER WEATHER EARLY NEXT WEEK.

HIGH TEMPERATURE FORECASTS FOR SATURDAY...
BEACHES 70 TO 80.

COASTAL ZONES 80 TO 95.

INLAND VALLEYS 95 TO 110. (I am here)

MOUNTAINS 80 TO 95.

HIGH DESERTS 100 TO 105.

LOWER DESERTS 112 TO 120.

PEOPLE PLANNING OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES SHOULD TAKE INTO CONSIDERATION THE HOT WEATHER AND ADJUST ACTIVITIES ACCORDINGLY. AVOID PHYSICAL EXERTION DURING THE HOTTEST PART OF THE DAY. WEAR LOOSE FITTING LIGHT WEIGHT CLOTHING AND DRINK PLENTY OF WATER. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF SHADE AND AIR CONDITIONING IF AVAILABLE. NEVER LEAVE PEOPLE OR PETS IN ENCLOSED AUTOMOBILES.


Caramba....excellent weather for heavy labor in the house. Hope you're having a good weekend!
