Temperatures well above normal are expected to heat the San Francisco area Wednesday.

The normal high for this time of year is 67 degrees F; the highs on Wednesday will be in the mid- to upper-80s.

On Wednesday, the city will approach their high temperature record set back in 2006 at 87 F. The city is forecast to near the 89 F mark Wednesday.

Those spending any time outdoors through Thursday should be prepared for the heat by staying hydrated and by wearing sunscreen or a hat, as sunburn and heat exhaustion are possible.

The temperatures will stay in the 80s through Thursday, but no rain is the forecast for the week.
