Heat Wave Hits San Diego County

San Diego, Ca. USA
July 02, 2007

The weather service advised people to avoid heat-related health problems by limiting their time in the sun, staying well-hydrated and checking up on potentially vulnerable relatives and neighbors.

The San Diego area will swelter under the year's highest mercury readings over the Fourth of July holiday, with temperatures soaring into the triple digits in the region's inland locales, the National Weather Service reported.

The agency issued an "excessive heat watch" today for the county's valleys, effective Tuesday through Friday.
The hot times will really kick in Wednesday, likely bringing record-setting highs for Independence Day, forecasters said.
Even the beaches will be cooking, with thermometer marks reaching 80 degrees or higher, and the eastern valleys and mountains could experience 110-degree heat, according to the NWS.
Temperatures in the lower deserts, meanwhile, may top out at a furnace-like 123 degrees.
