Extreme Heat

Stockton and the Central Valley often experience temperatures in excess of 100 degrees during the spring, summer and early fall.  Cooling zones may be opened when temperatures reach or exceed 100 degrees for three (3) consecutive days without cooling below 80 degrees during the night.

Community members are always welcome to visit a City of Stockton Community Center during regular business hours.

On days with high temperatures, please remember to take precautions:

  • Stay indoors,
  • Keep physical activity to a minimum,
  • Drink plenty of water, and 
  • Monitor those who are sensitive to the negative impacts of heat, including elderly, children, those who are ill, and pets. 
For other tips for dealing with extreme heat, including avoiding heat-related illness, please visit Listos California. Summer of Safety resources are available in multiple languages on the Listos California website.
