Summer isn't over yet in the Tijuana-San Diego border region and this week is proof of this. Despite the fact that partially cloudy days are expected, temperatures will increase considerably.
Weather in Tijuana
According to The Weather Channel, temperatures in Tijuana will reach up to 30°C and 31°C (86°F and 88°F) with Monday, August 28 and Tuesday, August 29 being the hottest days of the week. For the rest of the week, partially cloudy days are expected with temperatures ranging between 28°C and 23°C (82°F and 73°F).
On the other hand, National Meteorological Services revealed that certain areas of Baja California could reach up to 40°C (104°F) with gusts of wind reaching 40 to 50 km/hour, with possible dust clouds and high tides.
Warning issued due to excessive heat in San Diego
National Weather Service has issued an extreme heat warning in several areas of San Diego County, due to the arrival of a heat wave that will hit the region in the next few days. Areas affected by this weather condition are:
- El Cajon
- San Marcos
- Ocotillo Wells
We recommend: First cold front of the season arrives in Mexico
This warning will be valid from Monday, August 28 at 10 AM until Tuesday, August 29 at 8 PM. "Highly dangerous" temperatures that could exceed the average by 15 degrees are expected.
Heat arriving before the first cold front of the season
These weather conditions will arrive before the first cold front of the season in the country, which should start lowering temperatures on September 1st in certain states of Mexico.
Due to this heat forecast, NWS has issued the following recommendations:
- Drink plenty of liquids.
- Keep away from the sun as much as possible.
- Stay in a room with air conditioning.
- Wear light and loose clothing.
- Keep an eye on family members and neighbors, especially those most vulnerable to heat-related conditions.
- Be very careful if you work or spend time outdoors.
- Postpone, as much as it is possible, grueling activities and do them in the early morning or at sunset.
- Small children and pets should not be left inside cars under any circumstances during a heat wave.
In addition, one should know the difference between the symptoms of heat-related exhaustion and heat stroke. The former shows symptoms of dizziness, thirst, abundant sweating, and nausea, while the latter shows symptoms of confusion, nausea, and even fainting. It should be noted that a heat stroke should be treated immediately by paramedics as it can result in death.
