According to the National Weather Service (NWS), daily, record-high temperatures will likely be broken each day with a record of 108 degrees within reach during the peak of the heatwave, Monday through Thursday. Exposure to extreme heat can cause various health problems, including heatstroke, heat exhaustion, and even death.

However, Governor Inslee suspends capacity limitations for all cooling centers owned or operated by nonprofit or public entities. Giving more people access to places to protect against the heat. The suspension of capacity limitations does not apply to private, for-profit businesses that offer air-conditioned spaces to the general public.

They may be a government-owned building such as a library or school, an existing community center, religious center, recreation center, or a private business such as a coffee shop, shopping mall, or movie theatre.
