As temperatures rise, be cautious when spending long periods of time outside. Find time for breaks indoors or in the shade, and stay hydrated. Keep an eye on those around you to help prevent heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Here are some of the symptoms to look out for:

Heat Exhaustion

  • Faint or dizzy
  • Excessive sweating
  • Cool, clammy skin
  • Rapid, weak pulse
  • Muscle cramps

Heatstroke

  • Throbbing headache
  • No sweating
  • Red, hot, dry skin
  • Rapid, strong pulse
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Loss of consciousness

Call 911 immediately if you notice heatstroke symptoms in yourself or those around you.

If you're looking to escape the heat, seek higher elevation areas. Idyllwild will likely only see upper 70s and low 80s for daytime high temperatures this weekend.
