Southwest US preps for 120 temps: Water, water, more water


High temperatures in San Diego County's deserts are predicted to be 107 to 112 degrees Friday, 109 to 114 degrees Saturday, 111 to 116 degrees Sunday, 113 to 118 degrees Monday, 115 to 120 degrees Tuesday and 114 to 119 degrees Wednesday.

"The combination of hot temperatures and high humidity will combine to create a situation in which heat illnesses are possible", The weather services advises.

A Heat Advisory is in effect for the foothills for Sunday through Tuesday as well.

Temperatures across Riverside County will continue climbing today as a heat wave that could potentially push temperatures in the deserts past the 120-degree mark in the coming days hits the region. Highs of 92 to 102 degrees are expected over the weekend, and highs of 96 to 104 degrees are in the forecast Monday through Wednesday, according to the NWS. Pi encouraged Bay Area residents to drink plenty of water and to stay out of the heat as much as possible.


According to the National Weather Service, a heat advisory is issued within 12 hours of the onset of extremely unsafe heat conditions. "Others who are frail or have chronic health conditions may develop serious health problems leading to death if they are exposed to high temperatures over several days".

The health department warns not to leave children or pets in a parked auto.

The NWS warns that long outdoor exposure will increase chances for heat-related illness, especially for sensitive groups and people without access to air conditioning.

"While it is very important that everyone take special care of themselves, it is equally important that we reach out to those who are especially vulnerable to the harmful effects of extreme heat, including children, the elderly, and their pets", Gunzenhauser said.
