A heat wave will continue in San Diego through Saturday, April 25, 2020.

Tranquil weather and seasonal temperatures today in San Diego County will give way to a significant warm-up starting Monday and continuing through much of the week, forecasters said.

Temperatures will be hottest on Wednesday and Thursday, where daytime highs will be 15 to 20 degrees above normal, according to the National Weather Service in San Diego. The heat will gradually subside Friday through the weekend.

"Patchy low clouds will redevelop tonight," the NWS said, "but should be less extensive than the last couple of nights."
