Palo Alto temps to reach 91 degrees Sunday, Monday

Weather officials issue heat advisory for Bay Area

A heat advisory has been issued for Sunday and Monday in the San Francisco Bay Area as western winds keep cool ocean air out to sea, according to officials with the National Weather Service.

Temperatures will begin warm Saturday, and even warmer temperatures are expected on Sunday and Monday. Palo Alto's high is expected to reach 91 both Sunday and Monday, according to the Weather Channel.

In other areas, highs on Sunday are likely to reach 86 degrees in San Francisco, 92 degrees in San Jose and 86 in Monterey, weather officials said.

San Jose will stay hot on Monday, with a predicted high of 93 degrees, while San Francisco will be a bit cooler on Monday, with temperatures reaching only 83 degrees.

Weather officials said the high temperatures across a portion of the area pose a moderate risk for people who are sensitive to the heat.

Residents and visitors should take frequent breaks and drink fluids regularly.

Weather officials remind people to avoid leaving a child or pet in a car where temperatures can rise rapidly.

The warm and dry conditions are expected to raise the risk of new wildfires. Also, a southerly swell of two to three feet poses a risk to beachgoers who may be caught off guard.
