Looks like the summer heat is sticking around for a little longer! A heat advisory has been issued for the interior portions of Ventura and Los Angeles Counties this week with temperatures expected to reach between the upper 90s and 105 degrees and 35-40 mph Santa Ana winds. Pet owners, please remember to keep your pets cool as temperatures rise!
The National Weather Service is predicting very dry conditions for southern California over the next few days with humidity falling into the single digits to teens. Elevated to near critical fire weather conditions are possible through Friday, October 2nd.
Pet owners are responsible for keeping their animals cool and hydrated during this heatwave. Be sure to provide access to plenty of water, shade, and rest in an air-conditioned space if possible. Avoid walks on a hot sidewalk, pavement, and sand, as the temperatures of these surfaces are often at least 20 degrees hotter than the air. Keep exercise and other strenuous outdoor activities to a minimum to avoid overheating and heat exhaustion for you and your animals.
