Heat Wave In Bay area Receded Slightly

The heat wave that roasted Bay area for days has slightly reduced on Sunday, and likely to die down soon bringing much-needed relief to some cities that are dealing with this high temperature.

An excessive heat warning expired at 9 p.m Sunday for the inland valleys and Coastal mountain ranges, according to the National Weather Service. Inland areas are expected to peak anywhere from the high 90s to 108 degrees, according to NWS. Areas along Bay would fluctuate between 85 and 95 degrees while coastal spots will welcome a temperature in the 80’s.

The heat wave combined with smoke has caused officials to declare Spare the Air Alerts for Sunday and Monday, marking a streak of five consecutive days with such high alert in place.

This heat was putting a strain on the power grid state wide. On Sunday around 2500 PG&E customers were without power. Weather officials have already warned the people to be prepared for the hot weather that may cause wild fire and heat related illnesses.

People should limit their outdoor activities during hottest parts of the day, drink lots and lots of water and hang out in air conditioned areas. Bay area residents are requested to limit pollution causing activities, such as driving and mowing the lawn. Officials also warn beach-goers to never swim alone and be careful about rip currents.
