Record-breaking warm weather expected Wednesday in Bay Area

Daytime temperatures could potentially reach between 90 and 100 degrees

Temperatures around the Bay Area will pick up drastically during the middle of the week, possibly breaking previous records, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures in the area are expected to warm up on Tuesday and Wednesday, with Wednesday being the warmest, weather service officials said.

Daytime temperatures in the area on Wednesday could potentially reach between 90 and 100 degrees. Wednesday's temperatures are forecasted to be between 15 and 25 degrees above seasonal averages.

In Palo Alto, the forecast on Wednesday is sunny with a high near 92 degrees.

The warm weather is due to building high pressure over the region and a developing offshore flow, according to weather service officials.

After Wednesday, a cooling trend will then make its way to the Bay Area as an upper level system approaches the region, bringing with it the possibility of rain later this week and into the coming weekend.

During the warm weather, weather service officials recommend people drink plenty of water and try to reduce, eliminate or reschedule outdoor activity until the coolest time of the day.

Additionally, residents are advised to wear lightweight, light-colored clothing and to never leave pets, children, elderly or disabled adults inside parked vehicles, weather service officials said.

We have had too many of these heat waves lately. How can we make the warmies back off their climate change hoax and let the weather alone?

Climate change is real. This is a direct byproduct of all the harm we have done as a species to the ozone.

Let's get real. It is time for carpool laws to require 3 or more occupants. Extend the double carpool lanes to cover all of 101.

Several roads should become bicycle-only. It is good for the environment and your health. Bicycling is a win-win and I promise it will grow on you.

As will public transit -- we simply have to make buses and shuttles more spacious and appealing. Let's make a huge investment in public transit infrastructure. I am sure that with some creativity and innovation it will gradually replace single-occupant vehicles.

I believe that selfishness makes us lead consumptive lifestyles which ultimately hurts the environment.

It is time for a major cultural shift towards renewal.

We need to band together and give back to mother earth.

Also let's ban plastic bottles. Plastic has to go. It is simply killing our planet. There are so many alternatives. A little regulation will encourage people to make transitions towards a more positive and sustainable society.

Palo Alto can become the leader in this movement!

The next convention is in the forest near Stanford. Don't forget your masks.
