SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTLX) — Triple-digit temperatures are expected to arrive in the Sacramento area this week, according to the FOX40 Weather Team.
The high temperatures are due to a heat dome that will affect most of the state.

The National Weather Service in Sacramento has issued a heat advisory to be in effect Tuesday and Wednesday. The advisory warns of the risk of heat-related illness if proper precautions are not taken.
“Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun, and check up on relatives and neighbors,” the advisory states. “Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances.”
Additional tips to avoid heat-related illness include limiting outdoor activities to early morning or evening and wearing loose-fitting clothing.
It will cool down slightly on Thursday, with the high expected to be 100 degrees. Temperatures will then begin to cool down but stay near 100.
Friday and Saturday are forecasted to have highs of 99, and on Saturday, the high is 98.
