SAN DIEGO - Extreme heat and humidity, along with a possibility of lightning, thunderstorms and heavy rain are on tap as a new El Niño-influenced monsoonal flow moves into the area.

Officials warn the storms could cause flash flooding and the temperatures may be harmful to those at risk during heat waves.

Here's a breakdown of what to expect.

HEAT

Temperatures will rise into the 90s and 100s through the weekend, along with a major rise in humidity.

"The combination of high temperatures and increasing humidity may cause some areas to approach excessive heat levels, especially Thursday and Friday. During this time, people at risk of heat-related illness should be extremely cautious and seek shelter in air conditioning if possible," the National Weather Service said in a bulletin.

STORMS

The thunderstorms are most likely to develop in mountain, inland valley and desert areas, but coastal areas might see them as well, according to the NWS.

"Any storms that develop by Thursday will be capable of producing heavy downpours, dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning, strong gusty winds and flash flooding," the NWS said.

HEALTH RISKS

The heat and humidity place frail people at risk, especially during the peak days of Thursday and Friday.

"During this time, people at risk of heat-related illness should be extremely cautious and seek shelter in air conditioning if possible," the NWS says.

      Exactly! Weather people are generally charlatans, anyhow, but this is ridiculous.

      I flipped through channels during the major SD news networks last night. All 3 had completely different weather forecasts! Seriously, they need to get their stuff together. They were all taken by surprise by the last heavy rains we received., Really? What is your job?!?!

      Or just hire good looking talking heads so we look at their bodies and not listen to the (usually incorrect) jibberish they’re spouting.
