NEWS UPDATES Oct. 24, 2017
Heat, Wind, Red Flag Warnings continue
The Red Flag warning and the Wind Advisory in San Diego County has been extended into Wednesday, Oct. 25, according to the National Weather Service. Stronger Santa Ana winds are expected and strong high pressure aloft will bring near record-breaking heat Tuesday, mostly from the coast into the western valleys. Stronger Santa Ana Winds will become more widespread.
The excessive Heat Warning remains in effect until 8 p.m. Tuesday. High temperatures are predicted to be 100 to 106.
Again, heat related illness is likely for those involved in strenuous outdoor activity, or those with health conditions who do not have adequate access to air conditioning, according to the National Weather Service. If untreated, heat illness events could be fatal.
The outlook for Wednesday is not quite as hot, with slow cooling for Thursday and Friday. Still, temperatures are expected to be in the 80s to high 90s throughout the week and into the weekend.
All Scripps Ranch public schools are on regular schedules and operating under hot weather protocol.
