It's about to get really hot in the Southwest, and health officials want people to stay alert.

The heat warning extends from noon Saturday through 8 p.m. Tuesday.

A similar heat advisory in the mountain areas with elevations lower than 5,000 feet, which includes Julian and Pine Valley, will run from 11 a.m. Saturday to 9 p.m. Wednesday.

Temperatures, especially across Riverside County, could potentially hit the 120-degree mark, mainly in the deserts.

Temperatures are expected to climb in the upper 90s in central and south central Oklahoma and temperatures could reach as high as 106 degrees in western and north central parts of the state. Forecasters advised residents to reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening, drink plenty of water, wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing and be aware of the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

A ridge of high pressure centered over Southern California is to blame, said Will Pi, a meteorologist with the weather service.

"If you are exposed to high temperatures and humidity for too long you sweat heavily, and if you don't drink enough fluids, your body's cooling system may fail", according to the health department.

He added it was critically important to never leave children, elderly people, or pets unattended in homes without air conditioning and particularly in vehicles, even if the windows are "cracked" or open, as temperatures inside can quickly rise to life-threatening levels.

“California rules are very clear on how employers must protect their workers from heat illness, ” says Cal/OSHA Chief Juliann Sum. "Extreme heat such as this is not just an inconvenience, it can be unsafe and even deadly, but we can protect ourselves, our families, and our neighbors if we take steps to remain cool and hydrated".
