  Deer Park, and Colville.

* WHEN...From Friday through Wednesday, and possibly through the end

* IMPACTS...Unprecedented triple digit heat and unusually warm

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...This event will likely be one of the most
  extreme and prolonged heat waves in the recorded history of the

  impacts our ongoing drought.
