    A strong region of high pressure will continue to dominate the West. Chief Meteorologist Jeff Ranieri tracks who was the hottest Monday & how long 100s will last. Plus, why fire danger will stay elevated this Summer.

    An excessive heat warning remained in effect Monday for inland locations away from the inner bay through at least Tuesday, and possibly longer as the long range forecast appears now to be prolonging the heat wave through midweek.

    [BAY] Another Scorcher Sunday
    Daytime highs Inland reached into the 90s & triple digits Saturday. One of the hottest locations, Walnut Creek, topped out at 109° Saturday afternoon. With an area of hot high pressure positioned on top of the Greater Bay Area, temperatures will remain hot during the day and very mild during the night time hours. So therefore, an Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect through Tuesday evening due to strenuous & dangerous afternoon heat. Remember to take frequent breaks if you must be outdoors and stay hydrated with plenty of water.

    Warnings were issued for most of the Bay Area, where officials were warning people to drink plenty of fluids and stay out of the sun.

    The Bay Area was not alone in terms of heat.
