Angelica's Forecast: Blistering Heat by Sunday

Morning mist and fog along the coast

Temperatures will rebound this weekend, the hottest day will be on Sunday. Temperatures will become dangerous for the valleys all the way to the deserts.


The marine layer will bring possible fog each morning with mist, although should less of an issue on Sunday and Monday as a ridge of high pressure rebuilding. The chance for patchy fog will remain into next week. 


Saturday will bring less clouds in the valleys, but patchy fog mostly along the coast and the 5. The skies will be quicker to clear with temperatures averaging between 69-74 along the coast and 79-84 in the valleys, the foothills will average in the 90s.


A Beach Hazard Statement has been extended again, now through 11pm Saturday, for waves of 2 to 6 feet and strong rip currents. If going in the water be sure to swim near a lifeguard.


The Excessive Heat Warning has also been extended for the deserts through 9pm Monday for dangerous heat with high temperatures between 110 and 120 degrees.


A Heat Advisory is back in effect for the valleys and mountains on Sunday from 10am until 9pm, though I imagine they will extend this through Monday.


A much bigger cooling trend arrives Tuesday through Thursday, but we could see another warm-up by the weekend. 


Tips to beat the heat & be fire safe:

Stay hydrated, avoid strenuous activities between 11am and 6pm when the heat of the day hits, take advantage of the cooler morning and evening hours and wear light-weight loose-fitting clothing. Remember to provide your pets with plenty of water and cool shelter and never leave kids or pets in a locked car -- it gets deadly hot in minutes.


Remember it's still warm for kids, animals and anyone who suffers from respiratory issues so be sure to check the forecast when planning outdoor activities.
