Temperatures in Pleasanton will pick up drastically today and tomorrow, but then cool down at the same pace starting Thursday.
The National Weather Service is predicting the thermometer here will hit 82 degrees by mid-afternoon and then soar to 89 degrees by mid-day Wednesday.
However, a break in the hot temperatures will start Thursday with a predicted high of only 77 degrees, and then dropping to 64 Friday and staying in the mid-60s over the weekend.
The warm weather is due to building high pressure over the region and a developing offshore flow, according to weather service officials.
The cooling trend following on Thursday will be due to an upper level system approaching the region, bringing with it the possibility of rain later this week and into the coming weekend.
During the warm weather, weather service officials recommend people drink plenty of water and try to reduce, eliminate or reschedule outdoor activity until the coolest time of the day.
Additionally, residents are advised to wear lightweight, light-colored clothing and to never leave pets, children, elderly or disabled adults inside parked vehicles.
