THINGS WILL GET EVEN HOTTER
High pressure is tracking west from New Mexico and that will start heating things up across Kern County, especially into the middle of the week. Highs will reach 103-108 degrees in the South Valley, 100-105 degrees in the Kern Valley, 90-95 degrees in the mountains and 105-115 degrees in the deserts. For this reason, an Excessive Heat Watch as been issued Tuesday - Thursday. This means there is a threat for a heat related illness, including heat stroke, sun stroke, heat exhaustion, and muscle cramps. Please exercise caution during this time and reduce time outside and drink lots of water.
Even after the Excessive Heat Watch expires temperatures will still be hot into the weekend, so do not let your guard down when it comes to protecting yourself against the heat.Meteorologist KAHTIA HALL - July 22, 2018 6:21 PM
