SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Another round of thunderstorms is striking the Bay Area today as a record-breaking heat wave continues to hit the region.
Several thunderstorms developed in the Pacific Ocean early this morning and struck in the North Bay and East Bay.
Dangerous, possible record-setting heat, develops again today. The threat of thunderstorm lingers into the afternoon hours, especially across the North Bay. Our warnings and advisory continue.
"It's still sticky, it's still hot," said ABC7 News Meteorologist Mike Nicco. "The threat of thunderstorm lingers into the afternoon hours, especially across the North Bay."
Expect mid 90s to 108 in the South Bay on Monday. Temperatures will top 100-degrees in the East Bay.
"We are still looking at 70s at the coast through Wednesday, 90s around the bay and 100s inland," said Nicco.
Bay Area fire crews are continuing to put out several brush fires. According to CAL FIRE many of the fires were sparked by lightning strikes.

The National Weather Service says it estimates 2,500 lightning strikes early Sunday, calling it "insane." At one point early Sunday morning, more than 200 lightning strikes occurred in less than 30 minutes across the Bay Area. Wind close to 50 miles per hour were seen as these storms rolled through.
A Red Flag Warning has been issued until 11 a.m. Monday for the threat of new wildfires starting because of these frequent lightning strikes.
