An Excessive Heat Warning is expected to remain in effect across the interior valleys and mountains until Wednesday evening. Temperatures will stay hot and above average for the next week.
As the ridge of high pressure continues to strengthen, conditions could be above average by nearly 15 degrees. Moderate instability could also bring the potential for afternoon and evening thunderstorms for mountain areas.
Daytime highs on Saturday along the coast will soar into the 80s & 90s. Interior valleys will range between 100-110 degrees.
Hot temperatures, and the potential for strong draft winds could bring elevated fire concern through next week. Hot temperatures will remain but expect some relief on Saturday for the Central Coast. Further cooling on Sunday but again still staying very warm.
