There are excessive heat warnings for many states across the United States this weekend, and in the Bay Area the weather will also be hot.
Temperatures could soar into the 90s and low 100s on Saturday in the inland areas, according to the National Weather Service.
In the North Bay, a Red Flag warning has been issued starting Friday at 11 p.m. and lasting through Saturday at 11 p.m. The hot conditions will make fighting the Pawnee Fire in Lake County more challenging, though on Friday morning, Cal Fire had contained 56 percent of the blaze.
Reminder that a Red Flag Warning will take effect starting at 11 pm tonight and lasting through 11 pm Saturday for the hills of Napa County and far eastern Sonoma County. Outdoor burning is not recommended.#cawx pic.twitter.com/z2WETmclVG— NWS Bay Area (@NWSBayArea) June 29, 2018
KTVU meteorologist Mark Tayamo said while the Bay Area will be hot like the rest of the country, "at least we don't have the humidity here."
He said the coastline will still be cooler, in the 70s and 80s, and that Saturday will definitely be great "beach weather."
Temps will drop on Sunday.
Warming trend will ramp up tomorrow with inland highs in the 90s. Temperatures will peak on Saturday when widespread highs in the 90s and low 100s are forecast across the interior. #cawx pic.twitter.com/US5S5ocB0y— NWS Bay Area (@NWSBayArea) June 28, 2018
