Mid-90s daytime high temperatures were expected on Monday, before seeing the mercury ramp back to, or above, the 100-degree mark beginning on Tuesday.

Vallejo's projected high Friday is 85 degrees, dipping to 81 Saturday before jumping to 88 Sunday and then dropping to 80 Monday, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures will stay roughly the same at least for the next six days.

The heat warning extends from noon Saturday through 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Heat advisories and warnings, in addition to raising public awareness, alert hospitals and officials to prepare and respond to an increase in emergency calls, and activate programs to check on elderly and the home-bound, according to the weather service.
