The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued an
excessive heat watch, which is in effect from Monday morning
through Tuesday evening.

* Temperatures... 100-106 degrees, warmest on Tuesday. Overnight
lows in the upper 60s and 70s. Isolated lower 80s possible in
the foothills and mountains.

* Impacts... the very high temperatures create a dangerous
situation in which heat illnesses are possible. Temperatures
inside vehicles, even if the windows are partially open, can
quickly rise to life-threatening levels.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Never, ever, leave people or pets in enclosed vehicles, even for
a short period of time.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When
possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or
evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat
stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.

To reduce risk during outdoor work the occupational safety and
health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks
in shaded or air conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by
heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke
is an emergency - call 911.
