SAN DIEGO (FOX 5/KUSI) — California’s first big warm up of the year is here. Inland areas across the state and southwestern U.S. can expect to see triple digits this week with heat alerts in place.

Weather anchor Megan Healy says excessive heat alerts are in place for the middle to second half of the work week as a ridge of high pressure expands from the southeast.

San Diego County deserts will be under an Excessive Heat Watch from Wednesday through 9 p.m. Friday as daytime temperatures are expected to reach near 110 degrees.

In anticipation of the warmer temperatures, San Diego County opened its annual Cool Zones program. Part of the program, older adults, people with disabilities and people with health concerns can visit free, air-conditioned Cool Zone sites to escape the heat.

Those in need can visit Cool Zone sites at the county’s 33 branch libraries, community centers and other locations across the county, through October 31. View a full list of 2024 Cool Zone sites online here.

Because these are some of the hottest temperatures felt so far this year, our bodies might have a difficult time acclimating to summer heat. Make sure to drink plenty of water, use sunscreen, keep pets indoors and avoid too much time in the heat.
