Mother Lode Experiencing May Temperature Spike

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — With temperatures in the upper eighties today, and potentially in the lower nineties tomorrow, Tuolumne County’s Health Officer has a warning for residents.

Dr. Liza Ortiz tells Clarke Broadcasting, “It will be hot out, but the water will still be cold (lakes and streams). We urge extra caution for those who may be participating in water recreation.”

Dr. Ortiz says it is also the time of year to make sure there is extra drinking water on hand, supplies of important medications and that air conditioning systems are operational. She adds, “If you know of neighbors or friends who might benefit from assistance during the coming hot weather, this might be a good time to check on them.”

The spike in temperature this week is expected to be relatively short lived. High temperatures are expected to drop back into the fifties this coming weekend, in the lower elevations, with a good chance rain on Sunday. Temperatures are then anticipated to be in the mid-to-upper sixties next week.
