    You can't picnic here today.

    High temperatures and extreme fire danger have prompted the temporary closure of a San Jose park.

    The emergency closure of Alum Rock Park, located on Penitencia Creek Road, was ordered by the city after a daily climate reading in the park on Tuesday afternoon indicated high fire danger.

    No activities of any kind will be allowed. The closure will be extended if hot, dry conditions persist, city officials said. The public will be notified if that happens.

    Anyone wishing to know the latest status of Alum Rock Park may call 408-259-5477.

    The heatwave continued Wednesday for pretty much the entire Bay Area with only sun in the forecast.

    High temperatures should be in the mid 80s on the coast and lower to upper 90s inland.

    Tonight the Bay Area is expected to be clear. Low temperatures in  the mid to upper 50s and variable winds of 5 to 15 mph are anticipated.

    If you are looking for relief, you'll have to look beyond Thursday.

    It is also expected to be mostly sunny. With highs in the mid 80s on the coast and upper 90s inland.
