Lodi, that time has come. This week will be the hottest week the city has seen so far this summer. Starting Monday, temperatures will skyrocket into the triple digits, hitting 100 degrees during the day before cooling down to the low 60s at night.
It will stay that way throughout the week, with the hottest day looking like Tuesday at around 103 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. However, some independent forecasting services are predicting temperatures as high as 108. Night temperatures will slip to the low 60s.
There will be some reprieve at the end of the week as temperatures drop to the high 90s during the day. Nighttime temperatures will remain in the low 60s.
The onslaught of heat will continue through much of this coming weekend with temperatures still hovering in the 90s.
Lodi will not see another possible slight cool down until the beginning of next week.
Meteorologists suggest keeping a water bottle handy at all times and if you plan to be out in the sun, to wear plenty of sunscreen and bring hats and sunglasses.
Remember to stay hydrated, they said, as the likelihood of heat stroke will increase with the rise in temperature.
