    For all the Bay Area residents who complained about the region's cool weather for the past month - be careful what you wish for. It's going to be a scorcher.

    Temperatures are expected to soar into the 90s on Monday in the South Bay, North Bay and Peninsula, and even climb into triple digits in parts of the East Bay. 

    Even San Francisco is not spared from the above-average heat, with a forecasted high temperature of 78 degrees, which is normally 65 degrees this time of year.

    Across the bay in Oakland, the high is expected to reach 82 degrees.

    The Delta and East Bay valleys will likely exceed 100 degrees in many spots, for the first time this year.

    While Monday is poised to be the hottest day of the year so far, the heat in early June is not that uncommon. And in fact, the temperature are not likely to break any records.

    On this exact date last year, Livermore hit 105 degrees, and should hit a measly 102 degrees on Monday.

    The Bay Area's hot weather is all thanks to a ridge of high pressure combined with a thermal surface trough. That combination warms the air and helps clear out morning fog.

    Temperatures will decrease by as much as 10 degrees Tuesday ahead the arrival of some of the remnants of Tropical Storm Blanca, which was poised to make landfall over Cabo San Lucas on Monday.

    There is a chance for afternoon showers on Tuesday in the South Bay and a better chance for showers on Wednesday throughout the Bay Area.

    Wednesday presents a risk for increased fire danger as some of the showers will be accompanied by thunderstorms. In the past, moisture from tropical storms has produced abundant lightning, especially over dry Bay Area hilltops.
