But Matthew Hirsh with the National Weather Service said 120 is unusual.

A Heat Advisory is in effect for the foothills for Sunday through Tuesday as well.

Temperatures are expected to soar into the 100s in parts of the Bay Area over Father's Day weekend and well into the next week, according to the National Weather Service in Monterey.

A similar heat advisory in the mountain areas with elevations lower than 5,000 feet, which includes Julian and Pine Valley, will run from 11 a.m. Saturday to 9 p.m. Wednesday. Keep in mind to check pavement temperatures by feeling it with the back of your hand - if it's hot for you, it's too hot for your pet to walk on.

NWS forecasters stated a dome of exceptionally hot and dry air had made its way into the region on Thursday, resulting with the 2017 calendar year high temperature - thus far - of 104 degrees, according to weather data observed by the Seminole Sentinel via Texas Tech University's weather mesonet monitoring system. People with heat sensitivities should take steps to protect themselves. Locally higher temperatures are possible.

Bartling also reminds residents that temperatures in vehicles can quickly rise to life-threatening levels.

"If you have an elderly or infirm neighbor without air conditioning, make sure that they get to a cooling center or other air conditioned space between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m.", he said.

Valley highs are expected to be in the triple digits through at least the middle of next week.

In addition, pets may need extra care in coming days, the Weather Service said.

Californias Heat Illness Prevention Standard requires employers to train workers on the signs and symptoms of heat illness, provide shade when temperatures exceed 80 degrees, develop emergency response procedures and train workers on how to execute those procedures when necessary.
