18 June 2017, 01:20 | Ignacio Ramos



A Heat Advisory is in effect through Saturday for the valley, while a Excessive Heat Warning goes into effect Sunday through Tuesday.

The National Weather Services issued a heat advisory Thursday for Northern California areas that include the southern Sacramento Valley and the San Joaquin-Sacramento River Delta.

Temperatures across Riverside County will continue climbing today as a heat wave that could potentially push temperatures in the deserts past the 120-degree mark in the coming days hits the region.

Saturday's high is expected around 101 degrees, pushing up to around 107 by Sunday. High temperatures in those areas are predicted to reach 92 to 102 degrees over the weekend and 96 to 104 degrees Monday through Wednesday.

People looking to escape the heat can head out to The Bay, where temperatures will be in the mid-70s in San Francisco, or towards the high country, where temperatures in South Lake Tahoe will be in the low-80s. Forecasters advised residents to reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening, drink plenty of water, wear lightweight and loose fitting clothing and be aware of the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

And with temperatures this high, records will be broken. In addition, please take appropriate precautions when outdoors, stay in the shade as much as possible, and stay hydrated to prevent heat injury.

Authorities also warned against leaving children or pets in parked cars, which can heat up to lethal levels in just minutes.

"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.
