Bay Area weather: Excessive-heat warning still in effect”

The warning is in effect for the valleys, mountains and both coastal and inland Orange counties.

The NWS said it is certain that even coastal areas "will also warm significantly during this heat wave, with highs mostly in the 80s near the beaches and between 90 and 100 across inland portions of the coastal plain, including Downtown Los Angeles".

The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning that's already in effect in the valleys and will be in forcet from 10 a.m. Monday to at least 10 p.m. Wednesday along the coast and in the greater Los Angeles area.

The high today for Fallbrook is expected to hit 89 degrees, but by Tuesday, highs are predicted to hit triple digits. Anyone working or exercising outside risk dehydration and heat-related illnesses.

Monday is also expected to have a high of 94 with a smoky haze. A few records were set for the day Saturday, and the NWS said it appears Paso Robles set a new record for the day Sunday at 108 degrees. Highs will once again be between 105 and 111 degrees.

Forecasters say the hottest days will be Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and the heat will be especially oppressive across the region's foothills.

So far, Bakersfield has recorded 18 days in August with temperatures 100 degree or higher, according to National Weather Service statistics.

The weather service reminded residents to never leave kids or pets unattended in cars; drink more water than usual and avoid alcohol, sugar and caffeine; wear light colored clothing and a wide-brimmed hat outdoors to keep your head and body cooler; and take frequent rest breaks in shaded or air conditioned environments.
