The Heat is On: Bay Area Expected to Continue Seeing Scorching Temperatures

The heat wave that has baked the Bay Area for the past couple of days will continue Tuesday, with temperatures once again expected to soar into the 90s and 100s for several spots, according to weather officials.

The high heat has prompted the National Weather Service to issue an excessive heat warning for the East Bay valleys between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. A heat advisory will be in place for the North Bay, South Bay and locations along the San Francisco Bay during that same time period.

Scorching temperatures sparked a host of issues Monday across the region.

Late Monday, Bay Area Rapid Transit officials reported systemwide service delays "due to extreme weather related trackway equipment problems."

Power outages reported Monday on the Peninsula, San Francisco and East Bay were all tied to the scorching temperatures, officials said.

Some areas reached triple-digit temps.

Weather officials are reminding people to stay hydrated, limit the amount of time they spend outside during the hottest time of the day, and keep a close eye on children and pets, making sure not to leave them in parked vehicles.
