Sweltering heat expected to hit Bay Area

Temperatures could reach above 100 degrees in some areas, National Weather Service warns

The National Weather Service announced today, Aug. 23, that an excessive heat watch would be in effect from Tuesday afternoon through Tuesday evening throughout the Bay Area due to the suddenly sweltering temperatures in the region.

The Bay Area will be experiencing hotter conditions today and Tuesday, climaxing on Tuesday with highs ranging from the 90s to as warm as 107 degrees in inland valleys, NWS said.

The heat advisory is meant to encourage people to make precautionary preparedness efforts to avoid suffering from heat stroke or heat exhaustion, the weather service said.

The heat watch is specifically targeted at elderly, infirmed or very young people who may be far more sensitive to heat, NWS said. These people are further advised to drink a lot of water, stay in cool locations during the daytime, and have people check up on them regularly.

The weather service also stressed the importance of not leaving children or pets inside cars during hot conditions like those expected this week.
