Heat Advisory is in effect for the San Joaquin Valley, West Side Hills, Sierra Nevada foothills and the Lake Isabella area from 12 PM PDT Today until 9 PM PDT Monday evening. 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 during the hottest time of day could lead to heat exhaustion and/or heat stroke. If you have to be outside during the afternoon, wear sunscreen, drink plenty of water, and wear light colored, loose fitting clothing.
A few strong thunderstorms are possible in the Sierra Nevada from Sequoia National Park northward this afternoon. Dangerous cloud to ground lightning strikes, wind gusts near 45 mph, and small hail are hazards associated with strong thunderstorms.
Hot temperatures expected across most of Central California this weekend, so remember to practice heat safety. Limit outdoor activities and drink plenty of water.
Widespread triple digit heat is expected in the San Joaquin Valley this afternoon, Sunday afternoon, and Monday afternoon. A Heat Advisory is in place for the San Joaquin Valley (and adjacent foothills) during the mentioned time frame.
