For the next few days, extra precautions are recommended as an excessive heat warning remains in effect for much of the SEK area. Temperatures are expected to reach the high 90s or triple-digits as a heat wave passes through the area.
To keep yourself safe from the heat, avoid excessive time outdoors. If you must head outside, make sure to apply sunscreen early and often. Drink plenty of water, and never leave pets or children inside a car. In addition, stay away from sugar-based drinks or alcohol.
It's expected to be cooler next week, with temperatures potentially dropping to the low-to-mid 80s.
