Temperatures around the Bay Area and along the Monterey Peninsula are expected to spike this week, with above-average seasonal temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Daytime temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to rise between six and 12 degrees above average along the coast and as much as 18 degrees above average in the Bay Area's inland valleys.

Palo Alto residents can cool down at a cooling center at the Mitchell Park Community Center, which will be open from 1-6 p.m. The city-operated center is expected to adhere to social distancing rules and safety guidelines from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the city said in a tweet.

Weather service forecasters expect the Santa Cruz-Aptos region, Big Sur and the San Francisco Bay shoreline to have highs for Tuesday and Wednesday peaking in the mid-80s.

Temperatures in the interior East Bay valleys are expected to approach triple digits, spurring a moderate high heat risk for vulnerable demographics, according to the weather service.
