Weather forecasters are predicting more hot weather for our region, with North Bend area temperatures expected to hover in the low to upper 90s for Wednesday, August 11, through Saturday, August 14. With nighttime lows remaining in the upper 60s on Thursday and Friday, overnight cooling could be limited in homes without air conditioning.

Due to the extreme heat and for the safety of its employees, Republic Services will begin garbage/recycling/yard waste collections at 6am on August 12th and 13th. All attempts will be made to service customers. However, due to the safety/concern of employees, some routes could be left incomplete if health concerns arise due to the heat. Any customers missed may put out double the normal volume on their next regular collection day.
Si View Metro Parks has made the difficult decision to cancel the North Bend Farmers Market on Thursday, August 12th due to the excessive heat warning. The health and safety of the market shoppers, vendors, volunteers, and staff is the highest priority. While the market operates into the evening hours, event set up takes place during the hottest part of the day with minimal shade. Si View Parks is confident this is the safest option for everyone. The Farmers Market team is exploring options for extending the season by one week into mid-September. Normal market operations will resume Thursday August 19th, 4-8pm.

Reminder: Please do not leave pets or children in parked cars, even with windows down. Vehicle can reach unsafe temperatures within minutes in extreme heat.
During times of extreme heat, your body works extra hard to maintain a normal temperature. Older adults, children, sick and overweight are at greater risk of the effects from extreme heat.
