Musical instrument drive

The Los Altos School District is holding a musical instrument drive this month through June 30.

All nine elementary and junior high schools offer fifth-eighth grade students weekly or daily music programs.

Donations of used, working instruments will ensure that all students will be able to learn about music. Specific band and orchestra instruments needed include trumpets, trombones, flutes, clarinets, violins, violas and cellos.

Instruments may dropped off at the Los Altos School District office, 201 Convington Road, Los Altos, between the hours of 8 a.m-noon and 1-4 p.m. Donation receipts will be provided.

Heat wave this weekend

The hottest temperatures so far this year will arrive in the Bay Area this weekend, a National Weather Service forecaster said Tuesday.

The temperatures will rise Thursday and Friday with the hottest day expected on Saturday, National Weather Service forecaster Ryan Walbrun said.

The inland valleys in the North and East bays, including areas near Santa Rosa, Livermore and Concord, can expect to see the warmest temperatures in the region, projected to reach into the 90s and 100s on Friday and Saturday, Walbrun said.

Many cities will be about 10 degrees short of their record highs, he said.

Cooler but warm temperatures around the high 70s are expected Saturday in San Francisco and in the low 80s in Oakland, Walbrun said.

The South Bay will get into the low 90s, he said.

The North Bay hills in Napa and Sonoma counties will be dry Friday and Saturday evenings, which may pose a threat for fires, according to Walbrun.

The National Weather Service advises people to stay hydrated, wear light clothing and avoid strenuous activities outdoors during peak hours.

"Whatever happens will be relatively short-lived," Walbrun said.
