Trying to get anything done during this heat streak can be down right miserable. But as we know, life must go on.
All across the Central Valley, air conditioning units are running at full blast.
So are young athletes. For an under-13 boys soccer team in Fresno, skipping practice is not an option.
“This is competition level. We don't give up just because it's hot,” said Jon Graham, a soccer dad.
Even with it still over 100o at 7 p.m., Jon Graham enjoyed the evening.
“It's more bearable now than it was at noon. There's at least a breeze coming through,” said Graham.
Coach Greg Rieux says it's all about adjustments when it comes to exercising in extreme weather.
“We live in a valley where it's hot all the time, so you just have to shrink your practices a little bit and have them drink lots of fluids and they'll be fine,” said Greg Rieux, soccer coach.
Meanwhile, Hayley Field used her warm heart to pass out free bottles of ice cold water to those walking through Fresno's Tower District. She calls it community service.
“You know we live an individual life most of the time, but it's really nice to connect with the people here in the space you live in,” said Hayley Field.
As the mercury rises, more ozone activates in the atmosphere, exposing your respiratory system to harsh irritants. Doctor Praveen Buddiga's advice is to stay indoors.
“But if you're going to go out in the heat try to roll up the windows and turn the air conditioner on in the car. Drink a lot of fluids, drink a lot of water,” said Dr. Praveen Buddiga of the Baz Allergy Center.
If you have outside chores to do Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday you may want to get up early. By 9 a.m. it will be 90o and at noon it will hit 100o.
