Record heat today with 107 degrees possible by mid-day

Pleasanton, Tri-Valley could see hottest day of year, well over 1958 record of 102 degrees

Pleasanton and the Tri-Valley are expected to see temperatures as high as 107 degrees by mid-day today, far surpassing the record high of 102 degrees for this date set at the Livermore Airport in 1958.

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued its fourth consecutive Spare the Air Day for today in anticipation of high temperatures.

Today's smog alert is the ninth for the summer season, Air Quality Management District spokeswoman Kristine Roselius said.

Tonight the Tri-Valley is expected to be clear with a low temperature dipping to only 62 degrees by early morning.

Wednesday will be cooler, relatively speaking, with a high temperature of 96 degrees forecast for the Tri-Valley by mid-day. Temperatures in the 90s and high 80s are expected for the rest of the week, the Weather Service predicted.

If it does get up to 107 today, I hope parents have the common sense not to send their child to soccer practice. So unhealthy. Mine won't be going.

The same can be said for all the cross country runners. Too hot for these sports.

Does anyone know if it is true that the gym at PMS is NOT air-conditioned?

I don't believe it is air conditioned. Have you ever been there for an 8th grade promotion in mid-June? If you have then you'll know just how hot it gets when it's packed with people. I've seen them pull out those over-sized fans.... don't know if they use them for the kids during indoor PE days (when it's too hot outside, though?

My son had football practice changed to 5:30 am this morning. PMS IS air-conditioned, however the gym where graduation is held, is not.

I pull up yesterday before school is out; says 106 degrees on my car temp. There are my kids out on the field for PE in 106 degree heat. I was surprised they were outside at 2:30-3 but maybe it was better than the gym.
