Bay Area braces for multi-day heat wave

After peaking around 96 degrees on Friday at the Napa County Airport, temperatures should soar to 99 degrees on Saturday and 101 degrees on Sunday before dropping to 94 degrees on Monday, according to the Weather Service.

An excessive heat warning is in effect for the Coachella Valley and the San Gorgonio Pass zone, which includes the cities of Banning and Desert Hot Springs, will remain in until 9 p.m. Wednesday. In Southern California, the hottest temperatures will be in the deserts with highs over 110 degrees.

"There is absolutely no doubt we will be near all-time highs with this heat wave, with the hottest and most risky temperatures expected Monday through Wednesday", the National Weather Service in Phoenix said, offering heat safety tips.

The heat index is a measure of "how hot it really feels" when relative humidity is taken into account with air temperature, according to the weather service. People with heat sensitivities should take steps to protect themselves. That could rival the all-time high temperature of 122 degrees set at Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport in 1990. Heat stress to livestock with limited relief from heat overnight.

The hot conditions are labeled as a classic pre-monsoon heat event for the Southwest region, NWS said. Employers need to ensure workers are drinking plenty of water and taking breaks in the shade as temperatures rise, the state agency says.

In the first major heat wave of the year, the number of days north valley temperatures will be more than 100 degrees seems endless, but there is good news among the triple digits. Locally higher temperatures are possible.

"The very high temperatures could create a unsafe situation in which heat related illnesses are possible", the advisory read.

Heat will also scorch the central valley of California, where cities such as Bakersfield, Fresno and Sacramento will see highs over 100 degrees.
