NWS: Dangerous Heat Wave, Elevated Fire Danger On Tap For Southern California

NWS: Dangerous Heat Wave, Elevated Fire Danger On Tap For Southern California”

"Summer's not over yet", said Jimmy Taeger, a weather service forecaster.

Many Southern California communities will experience temperatures in the triple digits on Saturday, Aug. 25, 2017, and more crossing the 100-degree mark on Sunday and staying above it until Tuesday.

The National Weather Service says the heat wave will build Saturday and by Sunday excessive-heat watches or warnings will be in effect across Southern California and northward past San Francisco, excluding immediate coastal areas. The first triple-digit temperatures are forecast for Tuesday.

The hot weather is expected to last until at least Wednesday, but could "carry on the entire week", the NWS said.

The heat wave will also bring warm overnight temperatures, the statement said, adding there is a potential for "significant heat impacts across much of southwest California" for residents without air conditioning. "And don't physically exert yourself outdoors during the days".

Ozone air pollution can cause respiratory issues, with children, older adults and people with asthma or chronic lung disease among those most sensitive.

"The ridge of high pressure loft, what that does is it provides sinking air, which heats the atmosphere and that's combining with the weaker onshore flow, so we see less of that marine cooling influence", said Robbie Munro of the National Weather Service to KPCC.
