Excessive heat warning remains in effect until 7 p.m. this evening in the San Diego County Deserts and Coachella Valley, according to the U.S. National Weather Service.

Borrego Springs reached 115ºF on June 3.

Extreme heat will significantly increase the potential for heat related illnesses, particularly for those working or participating in outdoor activities. There will be a cooling trend for Friday into the weekend.

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 911.
