The valley will remain under the heat warning through 8 p.m. Thursday. Following Wednesday’s high of 107, Thursday is expected to hit 106 degrees.
Steady winds with gusts up to 24 mph could kick up Thursday afternoon ahead of a slight cooling trend through the weekend, meteorologist Jenn Varian said.
Friday should see a high of 100 degrees, closer to the average high temperature of about 98 degrees. Highs of 102 degrees are forecast for both Saturday and Sunday, and Monday should see a high of 101.
