Hot temperatures in store for Bay Area this weekend

Highs expected to climb up to the mid-90sin the south bay

After a cool few weeks in the Bay Area, residents should anticipate a serious warm-up this weekend with some places expected to see highs in the 90s and even the low 100s.

According to the National Weather Service, a warming trend began Wednesday that will continue through the end of the week and will peak Saturday afternoon.

The north bay, interior east bay, south bay and Santa Cruz mountains can expect temperatures to gradually rise from the low to mid-80s and temperatures reaching as high as the mid-90s on Friday and Saturday. There is expected to be cloud cover overnight and clear skies during the day with light wind. 

Coastal areas, including San Francisco and the Sonoma and Marin coasts, can expect warmer temperatures although exact values weren't immediately available.

Interior Monterey and San Benito counties are expected to see the hottest weekend compared to the Bay Area with expected temperatures in the mid-90s on Friday and the low 100s on Saturday.

Moderate heat impacts are expected, particularly for those who are vulnerable to heat. Rapid swings from cool to hot temperatures are also expected.

To stay cool, the National Weather Service recommends drinking water, using sunscreen, avoiding lots of physical exertion and staying out of the sun.

I find it FANTASTIC that so many are frightened of a 105 lb woman from the East coast!! A freshman backbencher with little to no power.

They are terrified!

They can barely function, with AOC occupying so much space in their heads. Rent free, as the kids say. Absolutely delightful!

Stay cool this weekend, peeps.

Thanks, Voice, for the update.

It'll get up to about 80 in MV. We'll really need to hunker down into survival mode with this one ;)
+ Sad political posters are exactly what they are.

What in the hell. Does every damn story have to be a political stage. Jesus Christ some of us just wanted to read weather reports and already avoid certain stories because of it.
