San Diego in the midst of heat wave

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — Temperatures continue to soar across the county Thursday, due to a heat wave expected to last through the weekend.

A National Weather Service heat advisory for the valleys, mountains and deserts goes into effect at noon Thursday and is expected to last until 8 p.m. Sunday.

“High pressure will strengthen over Southern California allowing for a summertime heat wave to bake inland locales through the end of the week,” according to the weather service.

San Diegans were advised to avoid potentially serious heat-related ailments by staying well-hydrated, avoiding unnecessary outdoor labor and wearing lightweight, loose clothing.

A little bit of moisture is developing along the coast Thursday, with some remaining mid- to high-level clouds.

Expect some relief from the heat by the middle of next week.

Thursdays high temperatures are expected to be 80 to 80 degrees along the coast, 90 to 95 degrees inland, 93 to 100 degrees in the mountains and 111 to 116 degrees for the deserts.
