News, Northern California braces for extreme heat this week, with forecast highs up to 115 : detailed suggestions and opinions about Northern California braces for extreme heat this week, with forecast highs up to 115 .
Temperatures in parts of Northern California could soar as high as 115 degrees this week as officials warn residents to prepare for excessive heat that could break records and pose significant danger.
An excessive heat warning is in place through Friday for the northern Sacramento Valley and adjacent foothills, which includes Redding and Red Bluff, with high temperatures forecast from 100 to 113 degrees. In Trinity County, where the National Weather Service warned of “dangerously hot conditions,” temperatures could reach 115.
“Tomorrow and Friday are especially warm,” Anna Wanless, a meteorologist with the weather service’s Sacramento office, said Wednesday. “And another reason we’re concerned about the heat is there’s not going to be a lot of overnight cooling.”
Nighttime low temperatures are forecast to dip only to the low 80s or high 70s Thursday into Friday, Wanless said, which doesn’t give the body much time to cool off and can be dangerous.
