The Bay Area will feel warmer temperatures Wednesday and Thursday, with some inland areas experiencing heat in the 90s.
While a storm passing through the region has provided the Bay Area with cloud cover, a switch in wind patterns midweek will prevent ocean winds from reaching inland areas, meteorologist with the National Weather Service Brayden Murdock said.
According to the NWS, almost all areas will experience moderate heat risks, which can be potentially dangerous to people. The Peninsula will experience a minor heat risk, which affects those extremely sensitive to heat.
Here's how it will look around the greater Bay Area:
Temperatures will reach the upper 90s to low 100s in the inland areas of Monterey and San Benito counties.
Daytime temperatures in the interior areas of the North and East Bay will range from the mid to upper 90s.
The Peninsula will have temperatures in the mid 70s to upper 80s, with temperatures ranging from the mid 60s to low 70s along the coast.
Temperatures in the areas of the East Bay like Berkeley, Oakland, Hayward and Fremont will be in the upper 70s to mid 80s.
Temperatures will fall between the 70s and 80s in the water-adjacent areas of the North Bay and Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Benito counties.
Temperatures in the mountains of Santa Cruz will range from the low to mid 90s.
Winds turning from the southwest on Friday will bring cool ocean air back into the region, cooling off inland areas and causing temperatures to drop between 5 and 10 degrees from their Wednesday peaks, Murdock said.
Coastal areas will get some cool air but will not be drastically cooler, he added.
With the predicted warmer temperatures Wednesday and Thursday, NWS reminds Bay Area residents to never leave kids or pets unattended in the car. Those sensitive to heat should avoid strenuous outdoor activities.
