It's going to be a hot weekend in the Yakima Valley and the heat is on for next week as well. The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat watch.

 

...EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM SUNDAY MORNING
THROUGH TUESDAY EVENING...

* WHAT...Dangerously hot conditions with temperatures up to 108
  degrees possible.

* WHERE...Portions of central, south central and southeast
  Washington and central, north central and northeast Oregon.

* WHEN...From Sunday morning through Tuesday evening.

* IMPACTS...Extreme heat will significantly increase the
  potential for heat related illnesses, particularly for those
  working or participating in outdoor activities.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...In addition to daytime highs of 100
  degrees or more, overnight lows will be quite mild. This will
  make it difficult to find relief from the heat, even after
  sunset.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.
