Temperatures are expected to soar close to 100 degrees Wednesday and Thursday, which is unseasonably warm.
George Cline is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sacramento. He says it'll likely be 98 or 99 degrees both days, which is 15-20 degrees above average for this time of year.
Cline says the heat usually catches people off-guard the first time it hits.
"Remember to keep hydrated; try to avoid your strenuous activities during the highest temperatures of the day," says Cline. "Typically during this time of year, the highest temperatures will occur between 4 and 6 p.m., so just be aware that's going to be the hottest point."
Cline says the heat will be fairly short-lived, as it's expected to be back in the 80's by the weekend.
