Be sure to drink plenty of water and stay cool!
The Bay Area and surrounding areas have experienced a bout of warm weather these past few days, expected to peak Thursday (today!) with moderate to high heat risk as you move further inland. San Francisco will remain at a low risk due to its location on the coast.
The warming trend 🌡️ continues through the afternoon and peaks on Thursday. No matter how you slice it, it’s going to be hot.

Inland locations including San Jose, Livermore, Concord, Santa Rosa, and Gilroy can expect temperatures in the 90s to low 100s. The National Weather Service has issued a heat advisory through 9pm on Friday. San Francisco will likely not surpass a sunny 76°F/24.4°C, but those who are highly sensitive to the heat will want to be vigilant in any case.
If you’re going to be further inland, be sure to prepare for the heat by drinking lots of water and staying cool! The NWS recommends limiting outdoor strenuous activities; seeking air conditioning; and wearing light clothing and a hat. Be sure to help the elderly, kids, and pets stay cool too and be wary of hot cars or direct sunlight.
