Statement as of 2:29 PM PDT on October 19, 2017

Expires 11:00 PM EDT on October 24, 2017


... Wind Advisory in effect until 3 am PDT Friday...
... Excessive heat watch in effect from Monday morning through
Tuesday evening...

The National Weather Service in Los Angeles/Oxnard has issued a
Wind Advisory, which is in effect until 3 am PDT Friday. An
excessive heat watch has also been issued. This excessive heat
watch is in effect from Monday morning through Tuesday evening.

* Winds... north 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 40 mph tonight,
strongest through and below passes and canyons west of Goleta.
Gusty winds are expected to return again Friday night into early
Saturday.

* Temperatures... 90 to 100 degrees Monday and Tuesday afternoon.

* Impacts... gusty winds will make driving difficult, especially
for high profile vehicles. This includes highways 101, 154 and
192... as well as the Gaviota and San Marcos passes. The very
high temperatures create a dangerous situation in which heat
illnesses are possible. Temperatures inside vehicles, even if
the windows are partially open, can quickly rise to life-
threatening levels.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

When driving, use extra caution. Be prepared for sudden gusty
cross winds.

Never, ever, leave people or pets in enclosed vehicles, even for
a short period of time.

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 light weight and loose fitting clothing when
possible and drink plenty of water.

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 911.
