San Diego County residents were advised Friday to begin preparing for a very hot weekend.

High temperatures on Saturday are predicted to be 76 to 81 degrees along the coast, 81 to 86 degrees inland, 84 to 89 degrees in the western valleys, 87 to 92 degrees near the foothills, 91 to 98 degrees in the mountains and 108 to 113 degrees in the deserts, the National Weather Service said. Building high pressure is expected to push temperatures a couple degrees higher in much of the county on Sunday.

"We will begin feeling the heat on Saturday," the weather service said. "The forecast for Sunday elevates the risk for heat related impacts to moderate levels across much of our region."

The heat is expected to continue into next week, the weather service said. Forecasters said heat advisories may be needed, but none were scheduled as of early Friday.

Forecasters advised residents to avoid potentially serious heat-related ailments by staying hydrated, avoiding unnecessary outdoor labor and checking on neighbors and relatives. Authorities also warned against leaving people or pets in parked cars, which can quickly become death traps in high heat.
