Hoquiam turns on the spray park, Weather Service warns of cold rivers in hot weather

Hoquiam Spray Park

The city of Hoquiam has energized the spray park for the next couple days so kids can enjoy some early summer.  The park will be active from about 12-7 today and tomorrow, and will re-open again around Memorial Day weekend.

Pacific Northwest residents are being warned to be careful around rivers and lakes as temperatures rise into the 70s and 80s today and tomorrow. The National Weather Service says rivers fed by melting snow are around 45-to-50 degrees. People who jump or fall in could be immobilized by cold water shock or suffer from hypothermia. They also could be swept away in fast-moving currents. Warming has raised the avalanche danger for the west slopes of the Washington Cascades and the Mount Hood area.
