Hot spell in this week's forecast


The National Weather Service is advising Bay Area residents of the potential for higher-than-normal temperatures this week.

Strong upper-level high pressure is expected to build over the Bay Area this week, causing warm temperatures that could exceed 100 degrees at the warmest interior locations by mid-week, officials said.

The combination of the building high pressure and an offshore flow will lead to a few days of above normal temperatures.

The Bay Area is expected to experience above-normal temperatures, but interior locations will see the warmest temperatures.

The warmest days of the week are expected to be Tuesday through Thursday. Temperatures are expected to begin to cool later in the week.

The National Weather Service is advising residents to plan accordingly for the hot weather by reducing activities between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m., wearing light clothing, drinking lots of water, avoiding heavy meals and avoiding too much sun exposure.

Cut up a space "blanket" reflective mylar sheet from an old earthquake kit and put it in the windows. We look like the Clampett's but are weathering the heat so much better (no A/C). No sun on the tile means the floors don't heat up and re-radiate all night.
