As part of what's being called the most brutal heatwave of 2022, California on Tuesday continued to bake in record temperatures -- and meteorologists say it could be several days before the state sees any relief.

Sacramento recorded a high of 115 degrees on Tuesday, tying California's all-time record. Just one day earlier, Fairfield -- a town in the San Francisco Bay area -- hit a record 117 degrees.

"This will be the worst September heatwave on record for Northern California," says University of California climate scientist Daniel Swain.

What's more is the high temperatures are expected to continue through the end of the week, Swain adds.

"It may be above 110 degrees in parts of Northern California through Friday," he says.
