Another hot weekend is in store for much of the Bay Area.
The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning in effect from noon Friday through 11 p.m. Sunday for the interior valleys, foothills and mountains primarily in the far northern and eastern edges of the greater Bay Area and beyond. A heat advisory has also been issued for the Santa Clara Valley during that same time period.
High temperatures will range from 100 to 110 degrees, with overnight lows mainly in the upper 60s to mid 80s.
Cooler temperatures will prevail along the coast and closer to the bay.
Heat this time of year can mean trouble in terms of starting wildfires, so PG&E is holding a series of webinars on how to stay safe. The webinars run from 6-7:30 p.m. and will focus on wildfire prevention, information on Public Safety Power Shutoffs and safety changes made to PG&E technology.
On Thursday, the seminars feature information for Alameda, Contra Costa and San Mateo counties. The July 15 webinar targets Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties. Any PG&E customer is allowed to join the weekly seminars, the utility says.
