To further illustrate how intense next week’s heat wave is likely to be, the National Weather Service issued an extreme heat warning Friday afternoon that will be in effect for most of the Bay Area starting Tuesday morning.

The NWS warned in its bulletin that there will be “dangerously hot” temperatures with limited cooling overnight. Temperatures are expected to peak in Livermore and Concord. Both cities are expected to see temperatures of 103 degrees on Tuesday and a degree higher on Wednesday.

Because of the high nighttime temperatures, there will be little relief from the heat even after sunset, especially inland and higher elevations.

The warning applies to non-coastal areas of the Bay Area and Central Coast, the release said. It was set to expire Friday evening, but temperatures are forecast to begin dropping Thursday.

Experts warned that these elevated temperatures increase the risk of heat-related illness, especially among people who work outdoors.

They also added that children and pets should not be left unattended in cars, where fatal temperatures can quickly reach.
