Forecasted temperatures approaching 100 degrees in the Bay Area on Thursday and Friday have prompted the National Weather Service to issue a heat advisory for the region.
Bay Area communities will be seeing near record high temperatures Tuesday amid a heat advisory in effect through Wednesday.
The California Division of Occupational Safety and Health has issued its first heat advisory of the year, because temperatures are 15 to 25 degrees above normal across the state this week.
The Bay Area and the entire state of California were preparing Thursday for a scorching weekend that could see temperatures hit triple-digit highs in many areas, even above 5,000 feet in the mountains, as a massive heat wave rolls through the West Coast.
A heat advisory has also been issued as temperatures are expected to reach triple digits in some inland spots.
Wednesday’s high temperatures in San Francisco were expected to dip slightly from a day before, but warm temperatures were expected to persist.
