Hot weather to last into Tuesday

Five high temperature records were set Sunday in San Diego County and one record was tied, as more hot temperatures are expected over the next day, according to the National Weather Service.

The official San Diego reporting station at Lindbergh Field reported a high of 91 degrees, breaking the 95-year-old record of 85 degrees set on that date in 1914.

Other high temperatures broke records all set in 1999:
-El Cajon heated up to 95 degrees, breaking the record of 92
-La Mesa also reached 95 degrees, breaking the record of 91
-Wild Animal Park hit 96 degrees, beating the record of 93
-Ramona reached 91 degrees, beating the record of 90 and
-Vista recorded 93 degrees, tying the high temperature record for that date.

Lifeguard Lt. Andy Lerum reported large crowds at San Diego beaches, with “sporadic rescues.” The water was chilly and a breeze made it feel even cooler, so few people ventured into the water, Lerum said.

At 4 p.m., the temperature was just 69 degrees at the Imperial Beach Pier, according to the Weather Service.

A dispatcher with the Northcomm dispatching agency said paramedics treated a number of people overcome by heat at the annual Avocado Festival in Fallbrook, where the mercury climbed to 94 degrees. She didn’t know if anyone was actually hospitalized.

It’ll be sunny Monday with record highs expected throughout San Diego County. Highs Monday will be around 84 to 89 degrees along the coast, 92 to 97 inland, 93 to 98 in the western valleys, 79 to 89 in the mountains and, 95 to 100 in the deserts.

The National Weather Service forecasts the hot weather to last into Tuesday.
