Enjoy the next few days, because a major heat wave will push temperatures above 100 in inland San Diego by Sunday.
The National Weather Service office in San Diego said extreme high pressure building over the Four Corners region will bring an unusually strong warming to Southern California, with temperatures reaching “hazardous levels” by Sunday.
Highs will be in the 80s at the San Diego beaches, but in the 90s just a few miles inland, and break 100 in the interior valleys.
“A strong and large area of high pressure will create very hot weather inland this weekend through early next week,” the weather service said. “High temperatures up to 20 degrees above normal are expected by Sunday, with areas of the Coachella Valley and low desert approaching 120 degrees.”
Monday, the first day of summer, is expected to be the hottest day of the heat wave, with cooling beginning Tuesday.
The weather service said high temperatures will be “near record or perhaps even record level” for June, adding that it’s rare for such a heat wave so early in the summer.
