A heat wave lasting several days is about to impact California.
According to the National Weather Service, temperatures in the central valley will reach over 100 degrees from Friday into Wednesday.
The hottest days will be Monday and Tuesday, July 1st and 2nd. Central valley highs will range from 105 to 112. Overnight lows will range from the mid 60’s to mid 70’s.
In the Sierra Nevada, highs on Monday and Tuesday will range from the 80’s into the 90’s. Overnight lows will drop to the low 60’s to the mid 70’s.
Moisture moving up from the south will make the days and nights somewhat muggy and more uncomfortable than normal.
There is the potential risk for afternoon and evening thunderstorms over the Sierra Nevada, mainly early next week.
Children, the elderly and people with chronic ailments are the most susceptible to heat-related illness. Pets and livestock are also vulnerable to heat illness and should be cared for properly.
