Temperatures on Friday are expected to be in the mid 80s at the coast and 90s inland. Weathercasters say it’s only going to get hotter each day through Monday.
Sunday into Monday will be the hottest stretch with temperatures in the low 90s at the coast and high 90s inland. Some inland valleys hit the triple digits as early as Saturday and will increase through Tuesday.
The heat awaits the Seattle Seahawks who will take on the San Diego Chargers at Qualcomm Stadium on Sunday with a kick-off temperature forecasted to be 96 degrees. Fans attending the game should wear light clothing and stay hydrated.
As the heat intensifies, county officials could demand a Flex Alert, an urgent call to residents to immediately conserve electricity and shift demand to off-peak hours (after 6 p.m.).
