SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The weather in the San Francisco Bay Area is going to cool down in the coming days.
But not by much.

It was so hot Sunday that the National Weather Service extended a heat advisory for the San Francisco Bay Area until 9 p.m. Thursday.

Residents are advised to avoid heavy activity in the heat and not leave children or pets in vehicles.

The Mercury News in San Jose reports (http://bayareane.ws/2sqAR5l) records for June 18 toppled around the region.

San Francisco saw 88 degrees downtown, up from the 1993 record of 86. San Jose was 103 degrees, surpassing the previous record of 99 in 1945. Oakland saw a high of 97, beating the benchmark of 93 set in 1962.
Forecasters say temperatures may be cooler by a few degrees through Thursday. Temperaturs are expected to drop more significantly on Friday.
