Check the National Weather Service HeatRisk for a seven day forecast of potential heat risks. HeatRisk takes into account how unusual the heat is for the time of year and the duration of daytime and nighttime temperatures. https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/wrh/heatrisk/
Hot weather precautions to reduce the risk of heat exhaustion and heat stroke:
Stay indoors and in an air-conditioned environment as much as possible unless you're sure your body has a high tolerance for heat.
Drink plenty of fluids but avoid beverages that contain alcohol, caffeine or a lot of sugar.
Eat more frequently but make sure meals are balanced and light.
Never leave any person or pet in a parked vehicle.
Avoid dressing babies in heavy clothing or wrapping them in warm blankets.
Check frequently on people who are elderly, ill or may need help. If you might need help, arrange to have family, friends or neighbors check in with you at least twice a day throughout warm weather periods.
Make sure pets have plenty of water.
Salt tablets should only be taken if specified by your doctor. If you are on a salt-restrictive diet, check with a doctor before increasing salt intake.
If you take prescription diuretics, antihistamines, mood-altering or antispasmodic drugs, check with a doctor about the effects of sun and heat exposure.
Cover windows that receive morning or afternoon sun. Awnings or louvers can reduce the heat entering a house by as much as 80 percent.
