MST/ Monday...

* temperature... the prolonged period of excessive heat is now
expected to persist into Monday with highs 111-115 for the Las

Valley and 113-120 along the Colorado River valley. Overnight
lows in the upper 80s to mid 90s will not provide much relief.

* Impacts... a prolonged period of intense heat will create a
dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are likely;
especially for the elderly, children, homeless, those
unaccustomed to the heat, and those that do not take proper
precautions.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in
vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
