San Diego’s National Weather Service said Monday that scorching heatwaves will continue through Friday night in all areas except mountains and deserts.
“Many areas were warmer than yesterday at noon, hot again,” the Meteorological Agency said, adding that “a strong high pressure system to the north will continue the heatwave through the weekend.”
Excessive heat warnings, in place since last week, have been extended through Friday for coasts and inland valleys and through Thursday for mountains and deserts.
Daily maximum temperatures during the heatwave are expected to range from 85 to 95 degrees along the coast, 96 to 106 degrees in inland valleys, 91 to 102 degrees in the mountains, and 108 to 116 degrees in the desert.
Flex alerts to save power are in effect from 4:00pm to 9:00pm on Mondays, and additional alerts may be called before the heat wave ends.
Due to the expected high heat, the San Diego Padres announced that they will be providing free cold bottles of water to fans who purchase tickets for their Labor Day afternoon game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Fans can also pick up free sunscreen at aid stations inside Petco Park.
