Yolo County Press Release
(Woodland, CA) – The US National Weather Service in Sacramento has issued an excessive heat warning from Saturday, September 3, from 11 am through Tuesday, September 6, at 8 pm. Yet, temperatures will start to rise today. Yolo County has a list of Places to Cool Down open to residents over the next six days.
Locations for Places to Cool Down can be found across Yolo County, including in Clarksburg, Davis, Esparto, Knights Landing, West Sacramento, Winters, Woodland, and Yolo. Yolo County has a GIS map with Places to Cool Down that will update with any added locations.
The dry, hot weather will also create conditions for Fire Weather on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Residents should take care when near dry fuels to avoid using equipment, like lawnmowers or hauling equipment with chains that might spark and cause a fire.
The California ISO has announced that excessive heat will stress the energy grid, leading to possible unexpected power outages. As a result, the California ISO may announce flex alters to reduce power usage during peak hours, and Yolo County will post messages on social media if needed.
Residents should prepare for outages. PG&E has information and tips on how to prepare for outages at https://www.
Tips to stay cool during the heat way:
- Never leave children or pets alone in vehicles.
