Heat wave expected this weekend

A heat wave is in store for San Diego County this weekend, with highs likely to increase up to 10 degrees above average in some areas, forecasters said.

According to the National Weather Service, the hot weather will last through early next week, with several days of only slightly lower temperatures to follow.

The hottest weather will occur in the deserts, where temperatures could exceed 115 degrees. But the absence of any significant humidity may make it feel slightly cooler, forecasters said.

Elsewhere in the county, highs are expected to climb to the mid- to upper 90s in the inland valleys, and the warmest mountain areas will reach the low to mid-90s. Moderate high temperatures in the upper 70s to mid-80s are expected in coastal areas thanks to the marine influence, according to the NWS.

“Temperatures will increase to about 5 to 10 degrees above average this weekend…,” according to an NWS advisory.

The agency urged area residents to avoid strenuous activity outdoors during the hottest part of the day, drink plenty of non-alcoholic fluids and wear lightweight clothing.

Also, “Never leave people or pets in enclosed automobiles, even for a short time,” the advisory said.
