Will San Francisco feel the heat during the Bay Area heatwave?

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) — Karl The Fog is not invited to the Labor Day weekend festivities in San Francisco this year. Sunny skies should bring the heat to the city.

The hottest heat wave of the year arrived in the Bay Area on Thursday and temperatures will continue to rise even higher over the holiday weekend.

Highs in San Francisco will hit 70 degrees on Saturday and Sunday before rising above 80 degrees on Monday and Tuesday, according to the 7-day forecast from KRON4.

The first week of September is historically a hot time of the year in the city. On Labor Day 2017, San Francisco recorded its highest temperature on record – 106 degrees!

This weekend, Urban Heat Watch volunteers will drive through neighborhoods with heat sensors attached to their vehicles. The Community Heat Mapping Project will gather microclimate data to see how heat is distributed in San Francisco on particularly hot days.

The heatwave will be downright scorching if you leave the coast and venture inland by next week. Some interior areas will suffocate between 100 and 108 degrees.

“It’ll be sunny out on the coast, it’ll be the 60s and 70s. Inland, we’re talking 105, 108, crazy numbers,” KRON4 meteorologist Kyla Grogan said.

And there’s no relief from the heat in sight. The weather in the Bay Area will remain warm for at least the next seven days, Grogan said. “Heat, heat and more heat. I don’t see where we’re getting back to normal yet,” she said.
