Sweltering weather trend is on the way

Experts are warning that the warm weather may seem enjoyable, but it could be dangerous.

Temperatures in some parts of the Bay Area will jump more than 20 degrees today and could reach record levels by Friday, Bob Benjamin, a National Weather Service forecaster said Tuesday. San Francisco is expected to be in the mid-80s today and the mid-90s by Thursday.

“The heat won’t start to recede until Friday, but even then it will still be warmer than usual for this type of year,” Benjamin said.

Forecasters have posted various heat advisories and are warning some residents, particularly the elderly, to stay within air-conditioned areas, NWS spokeswoman Suzanne Anderson said. Children, pets and the elderly should not be left unattended in cars, she said.

Each year, an average of three-dozen children nationwide die from being trapped in overheated cars, according to a study by children welfare groups.
