* WHERE...Portions of Central, East Central, North Central,
  Northeast and Southeast Washington and North and North Central
  Idaho.

* WHEN...From Tuesday morning through Wednesday evening.

* IMPACTS...Extreme heat combined with unusually warm overnight

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Monitor the latest forecasts and warnings for updates on this
situation. Be prepared to 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. This is especially true during
warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal
temperatures in a matter of minutes.
