According to the National Weather Service in Sacramento, the hot temperatures will result in widespread Major Heat Risk for the Valley and foothills, with widespread Moderate Heat Risk over the mountains. Localized Extreme Heat Risk is expected in the foothills. Highs of 105 to 110 are expected across most of the Valley and lower foothill elevations this afternoon, and readings in the 90s will be possible up to about the 6000 foot elevation over the mountains. Little to no overnight relief is expected tonight as low temperatures will generally remain in the upper 60s to near 80 degrees for the Valley and foothills.
