Last Updated: 92 days ago
SAN DIEGO - More hot muggy weather is in store for San Diego County Thursday as high pressure continues to dominate over Southern California, meteorologists said.
"High temperatures in the inland valleys will peak around or slightly above 100 degrees (through Saturday)," according to a National Weather Service advisory. "For areas within 10 miles of the coast, temperatures will also be above normal and warm, but somewhat moderated by a very shallow marine layer."
In the mountains and deserts, a chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms will also help moderate temperatures, but above-normal highs are still likely, the NWS said.

"A strong ridge of high pressure continues to sit over Colorado," said 10News Meteorologist Craig Herrera. "The clockwise airflow around that will send more humidity to the county with the chance of afternoon thunderstorms across the mountains and deserts through next week."
Little relief is expected overnight, with temperatures throughout the county dipping no lower than the 70s, according to the NWS.
"Needless to say, summer is not over," the NWS said, noting strenuous outdoor activities during the hottest parts of the day should be avoided.
