Mother Lode, CA — A heat advisory issued Tuesday remains in effect for the Mother Lode through 9 p.m. Wednesday.
The National Weather Service is reporting that temperatures will be in the 105 to 110 degree range.
It says while this is a bit cooler than recent days, prolonged exposure to hot temperatures can have devastating effects on the body.
Residents should continue to drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, and out of the sun.
The Weather Service also wants to remind people to check in on the elderly and never leave children or pets alone in unattended vehicles.
The cooling trend will kick in by the end of the week as low pressure approaches the northern California Coast.
