FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Another bout of dangerous heat will move into Central California this week, bringing triple-digit temperatures expected to get as high as 111 degrees.

ABC30 Meteorologist Madeline Evans says high pressure will move in starting Wednesday, with temperatures in the low 100s that will continue to heat up until we reach a high of 111 degrees by Friday.



An Accuweather Alert will be in place for that heat from Wednesday through Sunday.

An Excessive Heat Watch will also go into effect from Thursday through Saturday for the dangerous heat conditions in the Central Valley and lower foothills.
