NWS wrote that extreme heat will “significantly increase” the potential for heat-related illness, especially for those working or participating in outdoor activities.
“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,” NWS wrote. “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.”
