On Thursday, the Heat Advisory will expand to include almost all of the Bay Area. Record heat is likely.

There will be widespread temperatures in the 80s and 90s with no relief along the coast.

Dangerous surf will continue with a High Surf Advisory in effect along the coast. Waves could approach 30 feet in spots.

"The combination of the two events along the coast will pose a serious threat to life for those visiting beaches exposed to the open Pacific," weather service officials said.


The warm spell is short lived as cooler weather arrives Friday and temperatures dip below average into the weekend.

From Friday to Monday, the area will experience a cool-down as the high-pressure system that brought the heat moves off to the east.
