March 11, 2015 (San Diego’s East County) – An unseasonable heat wave is forecast for Friday through Monday, sending daytime temperatures to record levels west of the mountains with very low humidity, according to Alexander Tardy at the National Weather Service. Temperatures are expected to reach the mid-90s in San Diego County’s inland areas and well into the 80s for several hours each of these days, though the peak of the hot weather should occur Saturday and Sunday.

Heat stress is a concern in such warm weather, so organizers of outdoor events this weekend should be prepared to provide shade and water for hydration. Those planning strenuous work or high intensity physical activities should dress accordingly, drink plenty of fluids, or try and schedule these activities during cooler parts of the day.
