A Heat Advisory is in effect for the San Joaquin Valley from 2 PM PDT Wednesday afternoon until 7 PM PDT Thursday evening. A Heat Advisory means that a period of dangerously hot temperatures is expected. Heat related illnesses, such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke are possible. Drink plenty of fluids, stay out of the sun, and remain in an air-conditioned room.
A few strong thunderstorms are possible across the Sierra Nevada Wednesday afternoon and evening. Small hail, brief heavy rain and wind gusts near 45 miles per hour are some of the hazards associated with strong thunderstorms. In addition to dangerous cloud to ground lightning strikes, any thunderstorm can produce localized flooding.
Animals can die of heatstroke within 15 minutes, and cracking the car windows doesn't help. NEVER leave your pets in parked vehicles. weather.gov/safety/heat-children-pets #SummerSafety #HeatSafety
