The heat continues for the rest of the work week, with records in Poway, El Cajon, and Chula Vista. The chance for records will continue on Friday, before we'll see an improvement this weekend.
A ridge of high-pressure over the west has brought an early taste of summer across the county. A Heat Advisory will remain in effect until 6pm Friday for the coast and inland communities. Records could be tied in San Diego, and Alpine, and we could challenge records in Vista, Chula Vista, Escondido, and Poway.
Temperatures will average 80s at the coast, 90s inland, 80s in the mountains and 100s in the desert on the hottest days. Friday will be the warmest day in the mountains while the desert heat will peak Friday and Saturday before cooling begins.
High heat and low humidity will elevate fire danger, please be cautious and avoid machinery or anything that could potentially spark or start a fire.
Cooling begins Saturday with temperatures plummeting 10 to 15 degrees with another 5 to 10-degree drop Sunday. This weekend we'll see 70s Saturday dropping to 60s Sunday for the coast and mountains, 80s cooling to 70s inland while the deserts will drop from 100 to the mid-90s.
Even cooler next week, as a storm dives south with a slim chance for rain Monday night into Tuesday. The storm will bring gusty westerly winds, and lowering snow levels. The coolest day with the best chance for rain will be on Tuesday.
For those of you planning on attending the Padres Opening Day, the weather looks comfortable and mostly sunny. Stay tune.
