PASO ROBLES, CA, August 31, 2022 – An excessive heat warning will go in effect beginning August 31, 11:00 AM through September 5 at 8:00 PM. Dangerously hot conditions with temperatures of up to 115 and abnormally warm overnight temperatures are expected, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

NWS advises that extreme heat will significantly increase the potential for heat-related illnesses, particularly for those working or participating in outdoor activities.

The City of Paso Robles is providing a temporary cooling center at City Hall for the duration of the heat wave. 

Cooling Center at City Hall/Library
Paso Robles City Hall and Library at 1000 Spring Street will be set up as a cooling center from 12-6PM daily during the heatwave, beginning Wednesday, August 31 through September 5, including Labor Day. 

The Senior Center at 270 Scott St. and the Veterans Center at 240 Scott St. are public facilities and open to seniors and veterans in need of cooling during their regularly posted business hours. 

The Library will remain open during its regularly scheduled hours, Monday through Friday from 9:00AM to 7:00 PM and Saturday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, and closed for Labor Day (Monday, 9/5). 

Precautionary/Preparedness Actions
Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors. Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear lightweight and loose-fitting clothing when possible. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air-conditioned environments. Anyone overcome by heat should be moved to a cool and shaded location. Heat stroke is an emergency! Call 9 1 1.
