Hot days are upon San Diego.
It is projected that the current heat being experienced will only get hotter this mid-week in the whole of Southern California, according to a CBS8 weather report.
Heat Advisory said it is possible for temperature peak of more than 100° this coming this Wednesday and Thursday.
Daytime highs peaked well above average as a ridge of high pressure continues to dominate San Diego, said the report.
This ridge over Mexico will strengthen over the next couple of days.
Another area of high pressure from the Pacific Ocean will aid in this warming pattern through Thursday. Expect hot highs peaking 15° to 22° above seasonal norms.
For the deserts, Friday will remain hot as cooler temperatures slowly return in and west of the mountains.
WEDNESDAY MICROCLIMATE HIGHS:
- Coastal highs near 83°, normal around 68°
- Inland highs near 94°, normal around 77°
- Mountain highs near 88°, normal around 66°
- Desert highs near 106°, normal around 90°
The same report said, an Excessive Heat Warning also remains in effect for the San Diego County desert until Friday night. Extreme heat will significantly increase the potential for heat-related illness.
By the weekend, high-pressure ridging will weaken as a trough of low pressure closes in on the West. Onshore flow will also bring back low clouds stretching farther inland with a cooling trend into next week.
