On the heels of this weekend’s blistering heat—record temperatures were reported in San Francisco, Oakland, Half Moon Bay, and Monterey—high temperatures will continue throughout the early part of the week.

Parts of the North Bay and South Bay could also see temperatures break triple digits Monday. San Francisco is expected to see temperatures of at least 91 degrees.

A heat advisory has been extended until at least 9 p.m. Monday, which affects Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Monterey, Napa, Nevada, San Benito, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Sonoma.

Dovetailing with the drastic risk of wildfires in the North Bay predicted for this weekend, the National Weather Service (NWS) has forecast record or near-record temperatures for the rest of the Bay Area, possibly posing a significant health risk to residents of the East Bay, the North Bay, and parts of the South Bay.

Temperatures will likely soar on Sunday between the hours of 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.

“After a cool spring and early summer temperatures will rapidly warm this weekend. Sensitive populations such as the elderly, infants and those without access to air conditioning will likely be susceptible to heat related illnesses,” the NWS forecast warns.

The heat will likely last beyond Sunday, and NWS notes that it may extend the heat advisory into next week.

The weekend forecast calls for highs of 89 in SF, 98 in Napa, and 97 in Santa Rosa. In the East Bay, Oakland may hit 91, Antioch 95, and Concord 102.

San Jose and the surrounding South Bay face temperature of up to 95 on Sunday as well, and some parts of the Bay Area may creep up to 105.

The weekend advisory directs residents to stay hydrated, stay out of the sun if possible, and to check on elderly or ill relatives and neighbors routinely.
