Hot Weather Won't Last Long

With today’s temperatures are well over a hundred throughout the Sacramento Valley and approaching triple-digits in the Foothills and Bay Area…the extreme heat is a jolt to Northern Californians who’ve had a cool summer so far.

“Even for this time of year it’s hot. But it’s something that we should have been seeing at least a few times this summer which hasn’t really materialized until just now.”

Tom Dang is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sacramento. He says the late summer heat wave comes with some good news, especially for firefighters…it won’t last long.

“Certainly the fire danger will be elevated in the next few days. But another thing that we’re looking forward to is towards the weekend it looks like a return to highs dipping down into the 70s. So even if there is an elevated risk of fire danger, it should be mitigated towards the end of the week.”

Until then, Dang recommends drinking plenty of water and avoiding strenuous outdoor activities which could lead to heat stroke.
