...Hot weather Sunday through Tuesday...

Hot weather will result in afternoon temperatures peaking in the
upper 80s to low 90s Sunday through Tuesday. Those seeking relief
from the heat may be tempted to hang out near or in rivers, but
the cold swift-moving rivers are especially dangerous this time of
the year. Please exercise extra caution if headed to rivers or
lakes the next few days as cold water and hot weather can be
deadly.

If you are planning activities outdoors, please hydrate, wear
plenty of sunscreen, and never leave children or pets unattended
in vehicles.
