The National Weather Service has issued an excessive-heat watch for all across Stanislaus County for Monday through Saturday because of triple-digit heat and warm nights.
“Moderate to very high heat risk is expected during this time frame, which means there’s an increased risk for heat-related illness,” the Sacramento office of the weather service said in a news release Sunday. “... Overnight low temperatures are forecast to be in the 60s and 70s, which means some areas could see poor overnight relief.”
The forecast for Modesto, which is very similar to those of other local communities, is for highs near 100 degrees Monday, and 101 Tuesday through Saturday. Overnight lows are expected to be 69 or 70 degrees.
The West Side of the county is expected to get the highest highs of the week, reaching near 102 in Patterson on Wednesday and again on Saturday.
