Hot weather on the way for Bay Area, inland temps to reach 90 and 100 degrees

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.

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.
