San Diegans hit the beach as temperatures rise

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diegans hit the beaches Saturday as temperatures continued to rise.

As of 3:34 p.m., lifeguards said San Diego beaches were busy, but only had to conduct routine rescues.

Temperatures were in the low 80s in parts of San Diego and 75 degrees at Lindbergh Field.

The National Weather Service said February was the warmest on record with temperatures in most areas well above average.

These warm temperatures are expected to continue through early next week, but should weaken slightly as storm systems move into the Pacific Northwest.

According to the weather service, San Diego County is expected to stay dry.

Building high pressure is then expected to create warmer weather toward the end of next week. Forecasters said highs of 78 to 83 degrees were expected on Friday along the coast, 80 to 85 in the western valleys, 68 to 77 in the mountains and 84 to 89 in the deserts.
