* WHAT...Dangerously hot conditions with afternoon highs 100 to
110 for the Valley, 95 to 105 for the foothills, and 75 to 100
for the mountains. Overnight lows in the mid to upper 60s to
around 80 for Valley and foothills.

* WHERE...Burney Basin / Eastern Shasta County, Western Plumas
County/Lassen Park and West Slope Northern Sierra Nevada

* WHEN...From Saturday through Tuesday.

* IMPACTS...Heat related illnesses such as heat exhaustion and
heat stroke can occur due to prolonged exposure to hot
temperatures, even to the general population. People most
vulnerable include those who spend lots of time outdoors,
those without air conditioning, young children, the elderly
and those with chronic illness.


Monitor the latest forecasts and warnings for updates on this
situation. Be prepared to drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-
conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives
and neighbors.

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.

Dang, it's going to get miserably hot for awhile. Hope our power stays on when that comes our way.

    Pg&E and others advise patrons to conserve energy during a time span from 3 pm to 8 or 9(?). To have AC units fixated at 78 or higher, to close the curtains to keep the sun out of the house and other things. If all do that during this heat wave, I seriously believe there won't be any outages. If there are, they'll probably be just for an hour. I think the more populated areas like the BA and the hotter valley towns may have outages because of the strain of the load on the grids. PG&E has some type of coding system to let each area know if there will be any outages and the times starting and times ending. If you're registered on line or with your phone, PG&E will send some advanced alerts so we will all be prepared.
