Parts of San Diego County haven’t been this hot, on this day, for nearly 20 years.
NBC 7 Meteorologist Jodi Kodesh confirmed that both Ramona and Alpine reached 93 degrees Wednesday, breaking records of 92, set in 1996.
We may see record-breaking heat overlay the county for the second day in a row Thursday.
“Today and tomorrow, we remain 10-15 degrees above average,” Kodesh explained. “We certainly may see other records broken, predominantly in the inland areas and coastal foothills.”
Ramona’s current record for today is again, 93 degrees set in 1996. The forecast calls for temperatures very near to that.
At 9 am, the temperature at Lindbergh Field was already 70 degrees. While our coastal cities are way above average, it is unlikely records will fall. The airport is forecast to reach 80. The record is 91, set in 2014.
We will see a pretty drastic drop in temperatures this weekend, and into next week, when temperatures will hover in the low 70’s at the coast, and upper 70’s inland.
