Heat Advisory in Effect 9/27 & 9/28

9.26.20 Heat Advisory

HEAT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 11AM SUNDAY (9/27) TO 7PM MONDAY (9/28)

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a heat advisory for most of the region, including Santa Rosa for Sunday and Monday (9/27 & 9/28). Robust warning and drying trends are expected this weekend and into early next week with near record temperatures possible.

DETAILS:

  • Monday will be hotter than Sunday. Offshore winds will suppress the sea breeze and bring warm to hot conditions closer than usual to the coast, and in addition, may push wildfire smoke from the August and Red Salmon fires back into the area. Limited relief near the coast with sharp temperature changes only a few miles inland. Onshore flow is expected to begin returning to the coast later Monday but may not arrive until peak heating has already occurred.
  • High temperatures are forecast to range from 15 to 25  degrees above normal Sunday and Monday. Inland locations are  forecast to range in the mid 90s to low 100s, locally to mid 100s in the hottest spots.
  • Increased risk of heat related illnesses such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke can occur due to prolonged exposure to hot temperatures. People most vulnerable include those who spend extended periods outdoors, those without air conditioning, young children, the elderly, and those with chronic illness.

Residents are encouraged to drink plenty of fluids, 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. Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments. Wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing when possible. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. 

The City of Santa Rosa will open a cooling center on Sunday, 9/27 and Monday, 9/28. Get details here: srcity.org/CoolingCenter
