High heat to soar even more in much of Northern California

Extreme Heat, Fire Grips Calif. Ahead of Holiday Weekend High heat to soar even more in much of Northern California

When you think of San Francisco, you think of clammy, foggy weather stuck forever in the 50s and 60s.

On Friday, the temperature in downtown San Francisco reached 41.1 degrees Celsius. Temperatures are expected to be in the upper 90s in most areas.

High pressure will build into the region today and by tomorrow, temperatures will warm to values of between 20 and 25 degrees above normal for this time of year.

"I work from home and I live in an old mobile home with no air conditioning and not very good insulation", said Ogburn, who lives in Sunnyvale.

The National Weather Service announced that Downtown San Francisco reached an all-time high of 106 degrees on Friday, as a risky heat wave shatters temperature records throughout the region.

Forecasters said more heat could be expected when remnants of Tropical Storm Lidia move north from Mexico's Baja California during the weekend.

The Weather Service has posted an Excessive Heat Watch for Josephine, Jackson, Douglas and eastern Curry counties as well as the Southern Oregon Cascades and Siskiyou mountains.

Most of the county remains under an excessive heat warning, which is set to expire Saturday night after being extended twice, while the mountains and beaches remain under a less serious heat advisory during the same period.

Adding to the oppressive heat will be smoke that should continue to pour in from wildfires burning in Northern California and Oregon.

The weather service reminded residents to never leave kids or pets unattended in cars; drink more water than usual and avoid alcohol, sugar and caffeine; wear light-colored clothing and a wide-brimmed hat outdoors to keep the head and body cooler; and take frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments.
