Temperatures could reach as low as 90 by the end of next week in some parts of the bay, according to the National Weather Service.
The high-pressure system, which currently runs east of the Pacific Ocean, will reach the region on Wednesday, with high temperatures expected on Thursday and a drop over the weekend. Parts of the East Bay, including Livermore and Concord, as well as the Santa Clara Valley, will have the highest temperatures that can reach 94 degrees, NWS meteorologist Brooke Bingaman said.
The coastal and bay areas will be slightly warmer, with downtown San Francisco and Oakland expecting temperatures below mid-80 degrees on Thursday.
Although the heat did not break the record, Bingaman described the event as an “anomaly”, with temperatures in the region 15 to 25 degrees higher than normal for this time of year.
The last time temperatures reached the 90s in April was in 1989, at about five days, Bingaman said.
The meteorologist asked the elderly, the sick and the young to stay fresh and hydrated throughout the week.
