in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Other coastal areas should
remain relatively mild (70s to around 80) compared to inland

differences from the coast to a few miles inland could drive
an excessive number of persons towards the coast to seek
relief from the heat. Individuals are advised to check with
local authorities on potential closures of parks and beaches
and be aware of any special requirements for visiting such
areas. Overnight lows will range from the upper 50s to mid

conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives
and neighbors.
