Pat's Forecast: Heat Wave Continues Tuesday

SAN DIEGO - The heat continues Tuesday with humidity building into Wednesday. Ramona hit 103 Monday and that was a new record high. Alpine hit 102 and tied the old record high set in 2012. 

HEAT ADVISORY remains in place through 7 p.m. Tuesday for inland communities. Hot temperatures can be stressful to humans and animals so be sure to stay hydrated and avoid strenuous outdoor activity during the heat of the day. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing, avoid drinking alcohol and caffeine. For more tips to keep cool and more heat information, click HERE.

Hurricane Odile made landfall Sunday near Cabo San Lucas as a category 3 hurricane with max sustained winds of 125 mph making it the strongest hurricane to make landfall in this area. We have a slight chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms in the valleys, mountains, and desert on Tuesday afternoon.  Only about 20 percent. chance.

The moisture surge will increase Wednesday from remnants of Hurricane Odile moving north along Baja. The latest track keeps the peak moisture to the south and east of San Diego, so, just as we saw with Norbert while the threat for rain and flash flooding exists, it may miss us again. The humidity will increase, however, as Odile approaches making it feel uncomfortable through Thursday.

A trough will swing through Friday bringing cooler and drier air to the county with more comfortable conditions into the weekend.  Not soon enough, right?

TUESDAY'S TEMPERATURES:

  • COAST: 84-97
  • INLAND: 96-101
  • MOUNTAINS: 86-94
  • DESERTS: 99-104
