...HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 PM PDT MONDAY...

* WHAT...Afternoon temperatures 95 to around 100 degrees today,
  and 90 to 95 on Monday. .

* WHERE...In Oregon, Lower Columbia, Greater Portland Metro

* WHEN...Until 10 PM PDT Monday.

* IMPACTS...Hot temperatures may cause heat illnesses to occur.
 Rivers are running cold and fast, and will continue to do so
 this weekend. Nearly every year, people die in rivers in
 southwest Washington and northwest Oregon due to cold water shock
 during the season`s first heat wave. Hot temperatures can make
 the cool water seem tempting, but river temperatures in the 50s
 can easily result in cold water shock that can kill in minutes.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Today is expected to be the hottest day
  with highs in the mid to upper 90s, locally to 102. Maximum
  temperatures Monday are expected to be a few degrees cooler, in
  the lower to mid 90s. Nighttime temperatures are expected to be
  in the upper 50s to upper 60s, with urban areas and elevated
  terrain likely the warmest.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out
of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young
children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles
under any circumstances.

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 lightweight and loose fitting clothing when
possible. 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 9 1 1.
