Heatwave Starts Sunday and Goes Into This Next Week On A Prolonged Scale; Martin Heat Index Models Released


This is just a simple post to give you the heat index models you are use to seeing from this office.  These tell you what level from levels 1 to 5 you are in.  We are at max a 3 so this isn’t hotter than what we’ve seen this year already, but it is still a dangerous one.  Inside you will note that Las Vegas barely has level 1 while our valleys in Southern California have 2-3.  This is a classic sign of offshore flow and while not strong, this is ALSO A FIRE WEATHER WATCH –

5. Heat Stroke Certain After 10 minutes of exposure. You will die outside in this as it is near low oven temperatures that will slowly cook you. You may even have a hint of burnt human skin that only Jeffrey Dahmer would like. Water is a must and so is salt to replenish the salt lost in the body. Do not add pepper.

4. Dangerous. If you want to hike in this, you must have a lot of water. Most people think that they have enough water but they do not. This is the level at which kills a lot of people due to that reason. Working outside is not recommended. You do not want to be playing hot potato with your feet on the sidewalk in this level.

3. Great discomfort. Do not exert yourself on a level three. Drink plenty of water, and hiking is not recommended without proper knowledge and supplies.

2. Some discomfort. Be cautious outside when working and drink plenty of water.

1. Very little discomfort, however long periods of exposure could bring heat exhaustion.
