Another hurricane will impact San Diego weather this weekend – NBC 7 San Diego
Hurricane Jova, brewing hundreds of miles off the coast of San Diego, is close enough to bring high waves and chances of thunderstorms to the area this weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
Jova’s impact will be minimal compared to Tropical Storm Hillary, which hit San Diego with winds of more than 50 mph and record rain.
The storm prompted a high surf advisory for Orange County until 10 p.m. Sunday. Here in San Diego, surf is expected to peak between 3 and 5 feet Saturday, according to meteorologist Sheena Parvin. High waves combined with strong currents will create dangerous swimming conditions, the NWS said.
Parveen said Saturday out of the water should be a perfect day at the beach.
Here’s a look at Saturday afternoon’s highs:
- coast: 83 Sunny with breezes between 10 and 20 mph
- Interior: 93 Sunny with breezes 10-20 mph
- Mountains: 89 Sunny with winds up to 20 mph
- Deserts: 110 plus; Extreme heat warning from 10am Saturday until 8pm Sunday
The NWS issues heat warnings when temperatures significantly increase chances of heat related illnesses for people working or recreating outside. The graphic below shows temperature forecast for Saturday across Southern California. The NWS said Saturday will eb the warmest of the next 7 days
The unseasonably hot weather is expected to continue through Sunday, but Jova will begin pushing clouds into the area in the afternoon. There will be a slight chance of rain in the mountains on Sunday, according to Parveen.
Temperatures on Sunday look like this:
- coast: 83 – 86
- Interior: 93 – 97
- Mountains: 89 – 93
- Deserts: 106 – 113
The warm-up continues into Monday before temperatures drop and postcard weather returns to end the week.
When the weather is hot, remember to drink plenty of water and fluids, and always provide water for your pets. Take breaks if you work or play outside, and checking in on your elderly friends and neighbors is a great habit to get into. And remember to never leave your children or pets in hot cars!
