Summer weather and high temperatures are expected this weekend, starting Friday. Hot weather can make cool rivers very tempting. But our rivers are running cold and fast right now due to recent rain and rapid snow melt. 40-50 degree water can cause hypothermia in minutes. Every year, people die in our region's rivers due to cold water shock during the year's first heat wave. Please, learn how to stay safe and get help
