Crowded swimming holes, cooling centers and shuttered schools are all part of record-setting temperatures hitting California.
Hundreds of cooling centers are open in senior centers and libraries around the state as excessive heat warnings were issued into Thursday night in many areas, especially the valleys and lower mountain elevations.
Statewide high temperatures, some triple digit numbers, were expected from Redding to San Bernardino, Fresno to Fullerton in a heatwave forecast, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures into the 100s inland and into the 90s in San Francisco are expected.
In the North State, temperatures in Chico are expected to reach at least 100 degrees every day until Saturday, while in Redding temperatures could be as high as 108 degrees on Friday.
