While cooler temperatures and sunny skies are in store for San Diego County this Labor Day weekend, they may not be enough to ease the load for lifeguards and police who are bracing for a busy weekend.
Temperatures today will remain warmer than usual, but inland temperatures should drop 5 to 10 degrees on Saturday, and coastal highs will be down 2 to 5 degrees, Weather Service meteorologist Noel Isla said.
The Weather Service is forecasting highs in the mid-70s to mid-80s along the coast Saturday, and mid-80s to mid-90s in valley and mountain areas. Highs in the deserts Saturday are expected to range from 101 to 106 degrees.
On Sunday, highs along the coast are expected to be in the low 70s to low 80s, and low 80s to low 90s in the valleys and mountains. Highs in the deserts Sunday will range between 98 and 103 degrees, according to the Weather Service.
The agency is forecasting Labor Days highs to be similar to Sunday's.
