As forecast yesterday the two neighborhoods that broke records were Chula Vista at 89 degrees and Oceanside at 85! Today will be another hot one with more records likely falling before days end. The areas that could tie or break records today include: San Diego, Oceanside, Escondido, Ramona, Alpine, El Cajon, Campo and maybe even Chula Vista again.
The mercury will top out generally 15 to 20 degrees above average again today and humidity levels will be uncomfortable. Humidity will range from 10 to 25 percent, but the sea-breeze will return late today and usher in increasing moisture into the weekend.
If headed to the beaches to enjoy the cool water temperatures in the mid 60s, be aware a BEACH HAZARD STATEMENT in effect through Sunday. We'll see surf of 3 to 5 feet and sets occasional to 6 feet along south facing beaches. Expect strong rip currents up and down the coastline.
Friday's High Temperatures:
- Coast: 76-84°
- Inland: 87-93°
- Mountains: 68-86°
- Desert: 91-95°
While temperatures cool into next week we'll still remain 5 to 10 degrees above average but with improving humidity levels it will feel more comfortable. Stay with the 10News Pinpoint Weather team for the latest on this heat and the records that fall.
