WE ARE IN THE MIDST OF AN EXTENDED PERIOD OF DANGEROUS HEAT THAT IS FORECAST TO CONTINUE ACROSS THE INTERIOR THROUGH LATE WEEK. MANY INLAND ARES WILL SEE SEVERAL DAYS OF AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES EXCEEDING 100 DEG F. THE HEAT WILL BE TEMPERED NEAR THE COAST, BUT TEMPERATURES WILL STILL BE WELL ABOVE NORMAL. .DISCUSSION…AS OF 03:30 AM PDT TUESDAY… EXTREME, DANGEROUS HEAT GRIPPED MUCH OF THE REGION ON MONDAY AND NUMEROUS OFFICIAL MAXIMUM RECORD TEMPERATURE RECORDS WERE TIED OR BROKEN. OVERNIGHT VALLEY TEMPERATURES HAVE MODERATED SOMEWHAT TO THE 60S TO 80S WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A SHALLOW MARINE/NOCTURNAL INVERSION, , THERE ARE FAVORABLE ODDS THAT MANY LOCATIONS WILL RUN WARMER TUESDAY THAN MONDAY. GIVEN THE EXTREME HEAT ALREADY OBSERVED MONDAY COUPLED WITH MODEL DATA AND OBSERVATIONAL TRENDS, HAVE DECIDED TO EXPAND THE COVERAGE OF THE EXCESSIVE HEAT WARNING TO ALSO INCLUDE THE SAN FRANCISCO BAYSHORE, INTERIOR MARIN, NORTHERN SALINAS VALLEY, AND NORTHERN MONTEREY BAY. IN ADDITION, A HEAT ADVISORY IS ALSO IN EFFECT FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE COASTLINE TODAY, INCLUDING THE SOUTHERN MONTEREY BAY, COASTAL SAN MATEO, SAN FRANCISCO PENINSULA, AND COASTAL NORTH BAY. ALL SIGNS POINT TOWARDS TODAY RUNNING AS HOT, IF NOT HOTTER THAN MONDAY. AVOID UNNECESSARY OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES AND STAY HYDRATED. KNOW THE SIGNS OF HEAT STROKE AND DEHYDRATION AND MONITOR YOURSELF AND YOUR LOVED ONES FOR ANY HEAT DISTRESS. EXTREME HEAT WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE WORKWEEK THOUGH TUESDAY IS CURRENTLY ANTICIPATED TO BE THE HOTTEST DAY. A SUBTLE TROUGH PASSING WELL TO THE NORTH WILL BRING A SLIGHT COOLING TREND AND INCREASE IN CLOUDINESS ON WEDNESDAY. THAT SAID, INTERIOR TEMPERATURES IN EXCESS OF 105 AND APPROACHING 110 ARE EXPECTED ALL WEEK, THOUGH THERE IS INCREASING UNCERTAINTY REGARDING FRIDAYúS TEMPERATURES. THE RIDGE BREAKS DOWN THIS WEEKEND AS A DEEPER TROUGH PASSES TO THE NORTH AND A TROPICAL SYSTEM HURRICANE KAY APPROACHES IT FROM THE SOUTH. AS SUCH, EXPECT SOME RELIEF SATURDAY WITH MUCH MORE BROAD RELIEF BY SUNDAY INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK AS THE PATTERN SHIFTS COMPLETELY. IN ADDITION TO THE HEAT, EXTREMELY DRY CONDITIONS ARE ALSO EXPECTED WHICH WILL INCREASE FIRE RISK. AS ALWAYS, AVOID ACTIVITIES WHICH MAY LEAD TO NEW FIRE IGNITIONS, ESPECIALLY DURING THE AFTERNOON WH
