Temperatures are expected to reach dangerous levels across the San Joaquin Valley, West Side Hills, Sierra Foothills, Yosemite Valley, Kern River Valley and Kern County Deserts through the week. Please keep in mind to stay hydrated and cool.
An Excessive Heat Warning continues for the San Joaquin Valley, West Side Hills, Sierra Foothills, Yosemite Valley, Kern River Valley and Kern County Deserts until 10 AM PDT Saturday July 13.
Warm air temperatures do not mean warm water temperatures. Cold water can very quickly remove heat from the body and lead to a loss of movement in the limbs. When heading into rivers and streams, always take precautions such as wearing a life vest, bringing a life preserver with you, and following all river/stream closures.
