The National Weather Service is forecasting weather in the upper 70s/low 80s, while the Weather Channel is predicting the upper 80s through July 23. Heat exhaustion is serious and can be fatal, the City of Snoqualmie suggests to watch for signs of heat exhaustion or heat stroke in yourself and others and to drink plenty of water. The City also advises to avoid dehydration, which can occur when relying on drinks with caffeine or high sugar levels, and to avoid alcohol.
