With a high over 100 degrees for the fourth straight day, Lodi and Galt both opened cooling centers Monday to make sure residents survive an unrelenting heat wave.
The grinding heat that started last Friday will not end anytime soon. Lodi’s high was 107 Monday, and a high of 108 is expected today. Highs at or above 100 are now expected through Saturday. After a dip into the mid-90s on Sunday, temperatures will start climbing again.
