Excessive heat watch issued for region

July 23, 2022

The National Weather Service, Spokane, has issued an excessive heat watch to include Boundary and Bonner Counties, for afternoon temperatures in the 90s to over 100 degrees Tuesday through Friday of next week. Overnight cooling will be slowed as the heat wave continues.

Heat will initially build up over the Okanogan Valley, lower Columbia Valley, and Lewiston-Clarkston area Tuesday and spread throughout the Inland Northwest during the week, peaking on Thursday. Dangerous heat me continue into next weekend.

Extreme heat will significantly increase the potential for heat related illnesses, particularly for those working or participating in outdoor activities. Residents without air conditioners will experience a build up of heat within their home through late in the week.

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.
