A Large and Slow-Moving Storm System with Thunderstorms and Heavy Rain

A large storm system will slowly track from the south-central U.S. into the East the rest of the week with strong to severe thunderstorms and heavy rain with flooding. Today's threat for severe storms is across Texas toward the Arklatex and heavy rain with flooding from the south-central Plains into the Lower Mississippi Valley. Also, critical fire weather threats are present again in New Mexico. Read More >

A Heat Advisory is in effect for the San Joaquin Valley, lower Sierra Nevada foothills, and Kern River Valley from 7 AM PDT until 11 PM PDT Wednesday. Heat sensitive people and those who are new to the area will be most prone to heat illness. Dehydration and prolonged exposure or strenuous physical activity outdoors could lead to heat exhaustion and/or heat stroke. If you have to be outside, apply sunscreen, stay hydrated, and wear light colored, loose fitting clothing.
Widespread triple digit heat is expected in the San Joaquin Valley Wednesday afternoon, resulting in an enhanced risk for heat-related illnesses. Although heat events like this are relatively common and happen many times a year, heat-related impacts are possible Wednesday afternoon for those new to the area if simple precautions are not taken. Plan to take action to reduce time outdoors, drink plenty of water, and remain in air-conditioned buildings. Heat-sensitive groups, such as the elderly, young children, and those with chronic ailments may need assistance to avoid heat-related illness. As always, never, ever leave a child or pet in an enclosed automobile.
Widespread triple digit heat is expected in the San Joaquin Valley Wednesday afternoon. High temperatures in Fresno, Hanford, and Madera will likely break daily records for maximum temperatures ever measured in those locations on May 25th.
Widespread triple digit heat is expected in the San Joaquin Valley Wednesday afternoon. A Heat Advisory is in effect from 7 AM PDT until 11 PM PDT Wednesday. Here are triple digit heat probabilities for select locations in the San Joaquin Valley on Wednesday, May 25th, 2022.
Stay hydrated with water. Do not wait until you are thirsty. If possible, plan appointments, errands, and other trips during the early part of the morning. Avoid the hottest part of the day. Use caution while exercising or doing yard work. And, never leave children or pets alone in hot cars.
