100s in Bay Area forecast for 6 more days
Get ready for more wild weather, Bay Area! Forecast shows 100-degree temps for six days before summer thunderstorms expected to return Monday, says Meteorologist Mike Nicco.

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Hurricane Genevieve could bring more humidity to the Bay Area during an already intense heat wave, according to ABC7 News Meteorologist Mike Nicco.

Nicco says 100-degree temperatures continue to dominate the forecast with a new round of possible thunderstorms next week.

In fact, it appears Thursday will be the only day this week without triple-digit weather.

"We are still going to be warmer than average on Thursday... we just won't hit 100," said Nicco.

Nicco is tracking a "monster of storm" in the tropics that could impact the Bay Area with a mix of heat and humidity.

"Hurricane Genevieve is a Category 4 and, just like Fausto, the possibility of it sending moisture our way is there," said Nicco.

Future radar shows a chance of thunderstorms Sunday night into Monday morning.

"It's something we will definitely keep an eye on," said Nicco.

An Excessive Heat Warning will be in effect through 9 p.m. Wednesday in the Bay Area.

Nicco's AccuWeather forecast shows inland neighborhoods hitting the 100s on Tuesday and Wednesday, high 90s on Thursday, before temperatures surge back up to 100 on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
