The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat watch warning for Monday and Tuesday.

Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho could see afternoon highs between 96 and 105 degrees, with some relief in the evenings when temperatures drop to the 60s and 70s, according to NWS.

“Hot temperatures and limited relief overnight will increase chances for heat related illness, especially for those without access to air conditioners,” the warning notes. “Heat stress is also possible for livestock and outdoor pets.”

Some relief may come thereafter. A cold front is expected Wednesday, returning temperatures to more average levels on Thursday, according to NWS.

“Breezy conditions are expected Wednesday and Thursday,” the service notes. “Shower chances will be limited.”
