Smoldering hot weekend hits San Diego
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — San Diego County is in for a very warm weekend, setting up for what may be record heat numbers over the next four days. An area of high pressure is expanding, moving through Northern Mexico into San Diego County, and San Diegans will feel the sting of its heat.
An excessive heat warning is in effect from Sunday to Wednesday, and even coastal areas will be under a heat advisory. Inland areas getting away from the coast will feel the sweltering heat as well.
Borrego Springs could reach as high as 118 degrees on Monday, which would be a new high. Monday also marks the first day of Summer, and it’s projected as the hottest day through the heat wave. New record heat temperatures could be on the way in several areas in what’s going to be a very hot stretch for San Diego County.
Inland will see a high of 93 Saturday before jumping up to 104 on Sunday. Coastal areas will be in the 80s, mountain areas will hit a high of 92 on Sunday. The desert is going to be smoldering for the next seven days, with a projected high of 115 on Sunday and 118 on Monday.
