Stay Safe and Stay Cool This Weekend

Courtesy of ReadyOC, here is a reminder about this weekend’s anticipated heat wave:

The U.S. National Weather Service has issued an Excessive Heat Advisory for Orange County, Saturday 9/13 through Monday 9/15. Potential record-breaking heat will hit so be prepared with plenty of water, stay as cool as you can and stay alert for any fire hazards!

We have a fire burning in Silverado Canyon right now.  Up to date information on that can be found here.

Below are the forecasted temperatures this weekend:

In short, stay safe and stay cool, Orange County!
