A heat wave is expected to ramp up temperatures across the region and state, particularly inland areas.
The National Weather Service predicts temperatures will climb to highs between 100 and 115 degrees in some parts of the Sacramento region starting Thursday. High pressure will gradually build over Los Angeles throughout the week, leading to rising temperatures each day, the NWS said Tuesday. The warmest days will likely be Friday through Sunday. Antelope Valley and interior San Luis Obispo County could see temperatures rise to 112 degrees.
The NWS Los Angeles office said there is an increased potential for brush fires across interior areas. These temperatures reportedly come in following Sacramento setting a new daily record of 109 degrees.
