Triple-digit temps to hit San Diego this weekend

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - High pressure and offshore winds are expected to push temperatures into the triple digits in parts of San Diego County this weekend and into the start of next week, forecasters said Friday.

A National Weather Service heat advisory for the valleys is set to take effect at 10 a.m. Saturday and extend until 7 p.m. Monday.

Higher than average temperatures on Saturday are expected give way to even hotter weather Sunday and Monday across coastal and inland areas in Southern California, with the highest temperatures in inland valleys, according to the weather service.

Forecasters said temperatures along the coast would be in the upper 80s Saturday and lower 90s Sunday and Monday. Temperatures in the inland areas are expected to soar into the low 100s.

"Very high temperatures can be stressful to animals and humans, making it hard for the body to acclimate and remain hydrated," according to the NWS advisory.

Forecasters advised area residents planning outdoor activities to try to schedule them for early morning or evening, take frequent breaks in shady or air conditioned areas and to know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Those headed outdoors were also advised to wear light, loose clothing and drink plenty of water.
