Brace yourselves for the first baking hot weekend of the summer season. Temperatures will be in the upper 90s from today through Monday.

“On Saturday, it’s going to be a hot day with plenty of sunshine,” sad Erik Pindrock, a meteorologist with AccuWeather, a private weather forecasting service.

On Saturday, the temperature is likely to hit a high of 98 degrees then drop to 58 degrees at night, he said.

On Sunday, the very hot trend will continue with sunny skies and temperatures that could reach 100 degrees.

“Lodi has not broken that century mark yet this year,” Pindrock said. This is the first time since October 2012 temperatures have gotten that high, he said. The area saw a high of 101 degrees on Oct. 2.

The record high for June 2 was 111 in 1960.

“We’re not up there, but we are getting an early taste of the real hot weather we get in summer,” Pindrock said.

The heat will grow somewhat more manageable during the workweek. Monday’s high should reach 95 degrees, while Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to see a high of 92 degrees each day.

Experts remind area residents to stay hydrated, make sure pets have plenty of water and shade, and take it easy outside during the heat of the day.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
