A dry and very hot start to the work week is expected in Coronado and the rest of San Diego County Monday, with forecasters projecting temperatures to reach the 90s along the coast and in triple digits throughout the region.
In Coronado it is expected to be 80 degrees Monday with a low of 68. It should cool to the mid-70s the remainder of the week with lows around 65.
According to the National Weather Service, other highs Monday will be:
- 85 to 92 degrees at the beaches and lower elevations near the coast;
- 92 to 100 in inland coastal areas and higher terrain near the coast;
- 100 to 108 in the inland valleys; 95 to 102 in the upper deserts, and
- 106 to 112 in the lower deserts.
“High pressure aloft over California will bring hot days through Tuesday, with weak offshore flow bringing the hottest weather” Monday, according to an NWS advisory. “The hot and dry conditions will increase the wildfire potential, especially near the coastal foothills.”
The heat should not be as intense as initially expected, when highs were expected to reach the upper 80s, even in typically mild Coronado.
