No Chill: High Heat Here To Stay In NorCal A While

The heat wave will kick off Friday, with the mercury climbing into the upper 80s in San Jose and into the mid 90s in Morgan Hill, Pi said.

It's about to get really hot in the Southwest, and health officials want people to stay alert.

A National Weather Service excessive heat warning for the deserts is set to take effect at 11 a.m. Friday and extend until 9 p.m. Wednesday. Highs of 92 to 102 degrees are expected over the weekend, and highs of 96 to 104 degrees are in the forecast Monday through Wednesday, according to the NWS.

Saturday's high is expected around 101 degrees, pushing up to around 107 by Sunday.

The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory for the region until 7 p.m.

NWS said it encourages people to learn the warning signs so you can stay safe in the summer heat. To reduce risk during outdoor work, the occupational safety and health administration recommends scheduling frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments.

Forecasters advised residents to reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening and authorities also warned against leaving children or pets in parked cars, which can heat up to lethal levels in just minutes.

"Always be hydrating with water, seeking shade and if you don't have air conditioning, seek a cooling center", Bartling said. "Extreme heat such as this is not just an inconvenience, it can be unsafe and even deadly, but we can protect ourselves, our families, and our neighbors if we take steps to remain cool and hydrated".

"While it is very important that everyone take special care of themselves, it is equally important that we reach out to those who are especially vulnerable to the harmful effects of extreme heat, including children, the elderly, and their pets", Gunzenhauser said.
