Warmer temperatures for San Diego through Friday
Last Updated: 99 days ago
SAN DIEGO - Warmer temperatures are in store for San Diego County from Wednesday through Friday, meteorologists said.
"A strong ridge of high pressure continues to sit over much of the central part of the continental US and it’s building west allowing us to heat up," said 10News Weathercaster Robert Santos. "This coupled with monsoon flow will surely make it hot and muggy for the next few days."

High pressure will strengthen a bit over Southern California the next few days, according to the National Weather Service.
"Temperatures will be a little warmer than the past week, with inland temperatures ranging 5 to 10 degrees above normal," the NWS said.
That means temperatures across the far inland valleys will top out in the upper 90s, with a few locations possibly exceeding 100 degrees, the agency said.
"The temperatures across the mountains and deserts will also be above normal. However, afternoon showers and temperatures will help moderate temperatures during the late afternoon and early evening," according to the Weather Service.
Coastal areas are expected to be in the high 70s to low 80s, or about 5 degrees above normal for this time of year.
"Needless to say, summer is not over and muggy conditions will prevail," the NWS said, noting that those sensitive to heat should take precautions, including staying indoors and drinking plenty of water.
