ABC7 News Meteorologist Mike Nicco said parts of the East Bay and North Bay are expected to soar into the triple digits over a five-day period.
"It's going to be an abrupt change, especially in our inland neighborhoods," said Nicco. "We quickly jump into the 100s Thursday."
Temperatures will rise to 101 in Fairfield and Antioch. Concord and Livermore will be in the the high 90s. Cloverdale will be the hottest location in Sonoma County Thursday at 104.
The heat wave will continue to intensify as the week progresses with temperatures warming up even more on Friday and Saturday.
Solano County is under an excessive heat warning from noon Friday to 9 p.m. Monday. Lake County and interior Mendocino County is under an excessive heat warning from noon Friday to 12 a.m. Monday. The North Bay mountains, as well as the East Bay hills, interior valleys and Diablo range are all under the warning from noon Friday to 11 p.m. Sunday.
"It's going to be the most dangerous in Lake, Mendocino and Solano counties on Friday through Monday because of highs of 100 to 115," said Nicco.

"There are a couple of things to think about," said Nicco. "If you have to be outside, do you have enough water?"
