The California “heat dome” is now entering Day 7. The heat wave, one of the worst in state history, has smashed temperature records across Northern California, and the Bay Area has seen some of its most jarring temperatures. An all-time record high of 117 was set in Fairfield at Travis Air Force Base on Labor Day and daily and monthly records fell in cities along the bay. California’s power grid will face more strain on Wednesday, though blackouts were largely averted on Tuesday even amid record-breaking demand.
