National Weather Service Issues High Heat and Fire Warning

NBC Universal, Inc.

The National Weather Service reports temperatures in the upper 80s to mid 90s for inland areas leading to a moderate heat risk this week.

Low humidity and breezy winds, combined with drying fuels, are increasing fire weather risk throughout the Bay Area, with the greatest concern focused on the inland portions of the region: Santa Rosa, Napa, San Rafael, Oakland, Concord and Livermore.

Meteorologist Kari Hall has details on the red flag warning and hot valley temperatures in the Microclimate Forecast.

The heatwave is expected to be felt late morning through early evening beginning Monday and lasting until Wednesday night.

A red flag warning goes into effect for Solano County and interior Northern California from 11a.m. Monday until 8 p.m. Tuesday.

The service says the elderly, sick and homeless will be the most vulnerable during this time and recommends shifting outdoor activities away from the hottest parts of the day, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
