Monroe and areas of the county near the Cascades were expected to see highs in the 90s.

Temperatures were expected to reach the 90s by Friday afternoon, with little relief in the evening, an advisory said. Highs in the 90s were also forecast for Saturday in those areas.

“These temperatures can become dangerous to vulnerable individuals and pets who are unable to stay cool,” a Snohomish Health District news release said. “Those who are especially vulnerable to heat-related illness include infants and young children, older adults, anyone with pre-existing or chronic medical conditions, people with limited mobility, and pregnant women.”

The heat advisory is in effect until 11 p.m. Saturday.

The health district recommends the following for those exposed to the extreme heat:

• Stay hydrated.

• Avoid strenuous activities and take breaks.

• Use cold washcloths on neck or wrists.

• Avoid outdoor activities during peak heat, usually between 3-6 p.m.

• Close doors of unused rooms and close curtains or blinds.

• Limit use of ovens and stoves.

• Never leave a child or pet unattended in a vehicle.

• Fans should not be relied on as the only method of cooling.
