Slightly cooler temps, as heat wave begins to exit San Diego County

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Somewhat cooler weather was in store for San Diego County Thursday as this week's heat wave begins to weaken, forecasters said.

According to the National Weather Service, highs Thursday will be a few degrees cooler than they were the past two days, when the mercury soared into the triple digits across the inland valleys and foothills. Greater cooling was expected by this weekend.

Forecasted highs Thursday were 74 to 79 near the coast, 85 to 90 inland, 89 to 94 in the western valleys, 97 to 102 near the foothills, 89 to 99 in the mountains and 106 to 111 in the deserts.

Though the heat wave was breaking, a high surf advisory remained in effect for the beaches Thursday. The Weather Service said the high surf advisory would expire at 11 p.m. Until then, "south swell will bring dangerous rip currents to south-facing beaches," according to the agency, which forecasted surf heights between two to five feet.
