Another heat wave in store for San Diego County

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Southern California was facing down yet another heat wave this week.

National Weather Service forecasters issued an excessive heat warning from 10 a.m. Monday to 8 p.m. Tuesday, as temperatures were expected to soar into the 100s everywhere except the immediate coast across a large swath of the Southland from Santa Barbara to San Diego and even stretching into Nevada.

Temperatures near the San Diego County shoreline will be in the mid-to- upper 80s Monday and Tuesday, while high temperatures were expected to reach 101 in Escondido, 104 in Ramona and 103 in Alpine Monday, with the weather one or two degrees cooler on Tuesday.

A high of 113 degrees was predicted for Borrego Springs on both days.

The heat will start to subside midweek.

“Some monsoonal moisture will return beginning Wednesday with high temperatures not quite as extreme,” the NWS said.

Further north, the Santa Barbara, Ventura and Los Angeles county mountains were placed under a red flag warning from 6 p.m. Sunday evening to 10 a.m. Tuesday amid weather potentially ripe for wildfire.
