A warming trend will continue this week with temperatures soaring 5 to 15 degrees above average Wednesday into the weekend. The coast will be the place to beat the heat as it remains comfortable due to the marine layer and stubborn clouds lingering at some beaches.
The heat will continue to climb each day, set to peak on Friday and Saturday with 90s inland, and close to 90s in the mountains.
Dangerous heat will impact the deserts, as temperatures average between 110 to 117 degrees starting Thursday. An Excessive Heat Warning will begin Thursday at 10am until 8pm Sunday.
Unlike the last couple of heat waves, this time around the nights will trend warmer as temperatures will only drop to the 60s for most of the coast, inland and mountain areas by the mornings while we'll see 70s and 80s in the deserts.
It will feel like summer into early next week, but the temperatures ease back down on Monday but most. Summer is just around the corner, Summer Solstice will happen June 21 at 2:13am.
