SAN DIEGO Temperatures could soar to the low 100s in parts of San Diego County this weekend, forecasters said.
Strong high pressure will bring hot weather through this weekend, with maximum temperatures nearing record levels, according to the National Weather Service.
The hottest day will be Sunday, with inland temperatures about 12 to 18 degrees above normal.
Highs on Sunday could reach the mid-90s in the inland valleys and low 100s in the lower deserts. However, the marine influence should help coastal areas stay in the mid-70s, according to the Weather Service.
The agency advised that people should avoid strenuous activity outdoors during the hottest part of the day, wear light clothing, and drink plenty of non-alcoholic fluids. It also urged motorists not leave pets in enclosed vehicles, not even for a short time.
