Bay Area communities brace for weekend of triple-digit temperatures

Residents in the East Bay are braced for another day of 100-degree temperatures. It's why some made sure to wake up early to safely spend a little time outdoors.

Dozens of people reserved spots at the Diablo Hills Golf Course in Walnut Creek as early as 6:15 a.m. The course's operations manager says it's something they prepare for on a hot day.

"We stock up on water and drinks," said Gordon Lakomy. "We'll have a beverage cart out there to keep people hydrated."

Hydration is one concern when you spend hours outside.

"The East Bay can get hot," said Brandon Morford. He spend the early morning shooting 9-holes of golf with friends.

"We try to get out early."

But too long in the heat and you'll start to feel its effects.

"I started feeling a little fatigued by the 4th or 5th hole," said Nick Zeller-Singh.

"The heat started picking up, but I'm glad we're done now because it's going to get into the triple digits and I just want to sit on some AC."

CAL ISO is issuing another Flex Alert from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday to avoid stressing the state's power grid. On Friday, CAL ISO declared a Stage 2 emergency, one step away from statewide rolling blackouts and local rotating outages.

Sunday is expected to be another hot day. Health officials warn to limit time outside. If you choose to be outdoors, wear light, comfortable clothing, spend as much time in the shade as you can, and drink plenty of water.
