Special Weather Statement 
National Weather Service Seattle WA 
330 AM PDT Mon Jul 31 2017 
...UNUSUALLY HOT WEATHER IS EXPECTED ACROSS WESTERN WASHINGTON 
THIS WEEK... 

An excessive heat warning is in effect Tuesday through Friday for 
the Western Washington interior lowlands from the Everett area 
southward. Note that the weather will also be unusually hot in the 
typically cooler parts of Western Washington this week including 
the central and north Washington coast, the areas along the Strait 
of Juan de Fuca, the northwest interior, and the Olympics and 
Cascades. 

Record high temperatures are likely in these areas on Wednesday 
and Thursday. Highs will be mainly in the 80s to lower 90s on 
Wednesday, and in the mid 80s to mid 90s on Thursday

It's smart to drink plenty of fluids, seek air conditioned areas, 
and avoid prolonged outdoor activities during heat waves. The 
elderly and small children are most at risk from the heat. Do not 
leave children and pets in cars, even with cracked windows. 
Heatstroke can occur quickly in vehicles resulting in illness or 
death. 

Grays Harbor Scanner wants to remind everyone to check on neighbors, friends, and family during excessive heat warnings.  Remember that the elderly and pets are very susceptible to extreme heat conditions where they do not have air conditioning and access to cooler areas.
