Daniel Swain in SF Gate: Heat wave coming to Bay Area, with temps to exceed 105 in some spots

It’s about to get hot, sizzling hot.  Saturday will mark the start of a robust warming trend with inland temperatures climbing into the 100s over the three-day Labor Day weekend, according to the National Weather Service. “Another week, another major California heatwave,” Daniel Swain, a climate scientist with the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability at the University of California, Los Angeles, shared on Twitter. “This will undoubtedly complicate ongoing wildfire situation, & may have elevated health impacts given ongoing ‘smokestorm’ conditions that make it difficult to spend time outdoors/open windows.”
