'Heat Domes' Could Push Parts Of The Southwest To Record Temperatures



The National Weather Service said it wants the public to know the difference between signs of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Drivers could experience delays exceeding one hour in high heat conditions coming from San Jose. A less severe heat advisory for mountain areas with elevations lower than 5,000 feet, which includes Julian and Pine Valley, will run from 11 a.m. Saturday to 9 p.m. Wednesday. Mid-90s daytime high temperatures were expected on Monday, before seeing the mercury ramp back to, or above, the 100-degree mark beginning on Tuesday.

The Central Valley will be an oven, with Sacramento expected to hit 103 on Saturday, 107 on Sunday and Monday and 109 on Tuesday.

High temperatures in Solano County are expected to increase west to east as the influence of the San Francisco Bay's weather pattern gives way to the Sacramento Valley's influence.

Through Friday's press deadline, the Seminole community had observed five days of 100-degree or higher temperatures, with those days occurring between June 10 and June 15.

Summer officially begins next week, but the summer heat is already here.
