Summer is in full force in the central San Joaquin Valley — and Fresno is on track to break the record of consecutive days over 100 degrees.
Along with the heatwave, a heat advisory, an energy flex alert and an air quality alert have been issued for the region.
The record of 21 days at or over 100 was set in 2005, and as of Monday, the Valley is on its 18th day, according to Carlos Molina, meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Hanford.
