Heat Warning extends through Wednesday

Heat Warning extends through Wednesday

The furnace-like weather San Diegans are experiencing will continue into the middle of this week. The National Weather Service San Diego has extended its Excessive Heat Warning through 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Expect dangerously hot conditions with temperatures up to 103.

Temperatures recorded Sunday morning at 9 a.m. were 97 in Ramona, 92 in Carlsbad, 98 in Fullerton and 97 at Camp Pendleton.

Extreme heat will significantly increase the potential for heat related illnesses, particularly for those working or participating in outdoor activities.

Drink plenty of fluids, stay in an air-conditioned room, stay out of the sun and check up on relatives and neighbors.

Young children and pets should never be left unattended in vehicles under any circumstances. This is especially true during warm or hot weather when car interiors can reach lethal temperatures in a matter of minutes.

Take extra precautions if you work or spend time outside. When possible, reschedule strenuous activities to early morning or evening. Know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Wear light weight and loose fitting clothing when possible and drink plenty of water.
