Bay Area temperatures cooking up amid Calif. winter heat wave

Southern California has a Tuesday set in the upper 70's to mid 80's.

"But that is nothing compared to what they're going to experience later on this week," according to Tuma.

"In fact, an excessive heat watch will begin Wednesday, lasting through Friday, for a lot of Southern California".

Just how hot will it actually get?

"We could find high temperatures between 85 and 90 degrees," forecasted Tuma using ABC7 Accuweather models.



Over the next three days, the San Francisco area will be well into the 70's, while the metro Los Angeles area will come close to touching low 90's. It means this weekend's Super Bowl has a shot at setting a game-time record.

"On Sunday, a forecasted high of 84 degrees would tie it for the hottest Super Bowl ever seen," according to Tuma.
