Accuweather Forecast: Excessive Heat Warning

Starting off our morning warmer than yesterday by a good bit. Temperatures are in the 60s and 70s which is about 5-10 degrees above where we were at this time yesterday. Wind is still light and will be staying that way through the afternoon around 5-10 mph. We will warm up very quickly and are expected to hit our first 100 degree day kicking off the first heat wave of the year. We'll make it in to the mid-90s by noon and will reach a high of 102 for our afternoon high. Normal high this time of year is only 86 and our record high in Fresno is set at 103 but other parts of the valley could break their record highs. There is no rain in our forecast since high pressure continues to strengthen and plenty of sunshine. Temperatures continue to heat up this week to 105 tomorrow which could break the past record of 104. Then we reach 106 on Thursday which will be just shy of the past record of 107. The excessive heat warning does continue into Thursday. By Friday we start to track a cold front that drops our high temperatures in to the upper 90s Friday but by the weekend we drop to the mid-80s with extra cloud cover. We are tracking a slight possibility of a few north valley showers Monday but that is still quite a few days out so that can change.
