Gilroy residents can go to the Gilroy Senior Center, 7371 Hanna Street, to cool off today. The center will be open until 6 p.m. More information can be obtained at 846-0414.

By tomorrow, the temperature is expected to drop to 101. But the heat wave will be “short lived” as Friday’s forecasted high is 80, Henderson added. By this weekend highs will be about 72 degrees.

It will also be sunny today and Wednesday, with cloudy skies and fog returning by Friday.

For the rest of the summer, as far as forecasters are able to predict, the cooler pattern that the Bay Area has seen until now will return, Henderson said.

Today’s heat advisory is the first of the year, as the mercury hasn’t risen far above 90 degrees until this week, Henderson said.
