Those who plan to attend Friday festivities honoring the three Sacramento-area men who stymied a terror attack on a French train be warned that temperatures are expected to be in the 90s when the noon parade kicks off.

The day is expected to top out at 107 degrees. The hours from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. are predicted to be the hottest part of the day.

The Sacramento office of the National Weather Service in Sacramento has prepared a Youtube briefing on this week’s heat wave that includes 100-degree readings each day through Friday.

Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos and Spencer Stone, three local men who foiled a terrorist attack last month in Europe on a train from Amsterdam to Paris, will be honored with the parade on Capitol Mall.

The three were awarded the Legion of Honor from French President Francois Hollande for their actions and have been feted internationally.
