Nature giving Comic Con and the rest of us a little bit of a break today. Maybe you've noticed - not as muggy as it jas been; call it "drier" heat, seasonably warm today and tomorrow with the usual clouds overnight and mostly sunny afternoons.
That doesn't change but the temps do starting Sunday. By Monday we're expecting major heat as high pressure settles in and really cooks anyone and everything living in the east county.
An EXCESSIVE HEAT WATCH has already been posted for Monday through Wednesday. Expect 90s in the valleys and mountains and desert highs exceeding 110 degrees. By midweek we could see those highs soar well into the 115-120 degree neighborhood.
FIRST ALERT FORECAST: THURSDAY
Coast: Mostly sunny, beach "hazy" - High 79
Valley: Mostly sunny - High 86
Mountains: Sunny and pleasant - High 83
Deserts: - Sunny and warm - High 104
