High temperatures roast San Diego

The National Weather Service issued a Heat Advisory for this week and, obviously, high temperatures are already here and rising.

High pressure will strengthen aloft, bringing an extended period of very hot weather except at the immediate coast and at the highest elevations of the mountains, according to the National Weather Service.

The peak of the heat is expected on Wednesday. Nights will be quite warm as well, especially near the foothills of the mountains and in the deserts.

Toward the end of the week, the high aloft will weaken slightly and shift northward. This will bring a cooling trend with a return of monsoonal moisture. Above average temperatures are likely to persist into August.

The Heat Advisory will remain in effect until 8 p.m. Thursday.

A period of hot days and warm nights is expected to create a dangerous situation in which heat illnesses are likely. Drink plenty of fluids, frequent air-conditioned spaces, stay out of the midday 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.

Due to the extremely dry vegetation and hot, dry weather, the threat will be elevated for wildfire starts this week. Avoid or be extremely cautious with outdoor flame.
