Due to a heat wave, the Palo Alto High School varsity football game, previously scheduled for 7 p.m. against Half Moon Bay High School (1-0, 0-0), has been moved to 8:15 p.m.

The junior varsity game has been pushed back to 6:00 p.m., and the band call is now at 6:30 p.m.

The National Weather Service issued an excessive heat warning in the Bay Area in effect from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.

According to weather.com, temperatures are expected to reach 104 degrees Fahrenheit with 31% humidity throughout the day. Around 7 p.m., the original varsity game start time, temperatures will still be around 90.

According to senior offensive lineman Joe Reynolds, players would run risk of heat stroke under such conditions.

“Due to the heat, our games have been pushed back for the safety of our players instead of canceled,” Reynolds said. “This delay will not effect out performance tonight.”

At 8 p.m. the weather should be approaching low 80s, according to weather.com.

Seniors and other students are still instructed to wear camouflage and green respectively.
