Unseasonably warm temperatures will continue to heat up the region with an extended heat advisory, but those opposed to the increased temps can look forward to cooler conditions and even the possibility of rain next week.

The National Weather Service (NWS) extended its heat advisory through 6 p.m. Sunday for the coast and inland valleys. Initially, it was set to expire on Thursday, but the stubborn heat seems to be here to stay.

“Across the weekend, temperatures near the coast will range from mid-to-low 80s and the inland valleys will be ranging from about the upper 80s to near the mid-90s,” NBC 7 Meteorologist Sheena Parveen said.

Ramona and Borrego were among Southern California communities that saw record-breaking heat on Friday. The previous records for both were set in 2016.

On Thursday, Oceanside Harbor, Vista and Escondido set new records of their own.

According to NBC 7 Weather Forecaster Brooke Martell, there are several ways to beat the heat. She advises everyone to stay hydrated, wear light and loose clothing and to take breaks in the shade after long periods of time under the sun.

Inland communities will see the return of breezy conditions, which prompted a wind advisory that will be in effect through 1 p.m.

“We have those northeasterly, easterly winds," Martell said. "This is that offshore flow, those Santa Anas that really allow that heat to develop.”

Those winds are expected to travel at speeds of winds 20-30 mph, with isolated gusts potentially reaching up to 55 mph.

Those who favor colder temps are in luck since as quick as this warm-up arrived is just how soon it leave, as well. Cooler conditions are expected to greet the region early next week, and they may even be accompanied by some wet weather.

“After the weekend, we’re going to cool down,” Parveen said. “By Tuesday, we have a chance for maybe some showers. That’s part of a cold front that will move through and cool us down a lot.”
