Hazardous Weather Conditions: Local Heat Warning

September 6, 2022

The National Weather Service has issued a local heat advisory for the Bay Area through 8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 8, 2022.  During this time, temperatures are expected to be in the mid to high-90s in Hayward.

Extreme heat waves can increase the risk of heat-related illnesses, such as heat stroke, exhaustion, and dehydration. Warmer temperatures create more pollen in the air, stronger airborne allergens, and more allergy symptoms. Certain populations such as the elderly, children, people with disabilities and those living alone are at a higher risk during heat events.

Stay hydrated and stay indoors in a cooler environment, if you can. A list of local and county cooling centers can be found on our website below.
