Weekend Weather

August 14  15  16  17?

The Southland Region is in store for a significant heat wave beginning   August 14th Friday and affecting areas away from the coast. Heat risk will be high to very high for most of the population, largely driven by cumulative heat stress as a result of the prolonged nature of the heat, as well as a lack of significant overnight cooling. Heat wave conditions are expected to persist for at least 5-6 days across many Inland areas, and possibly longer in some locations, with temperatures that will range between 10 and 15 degrees above normal much of the time.

In addition to the heat, an increase in moisture and instability Friday onward will result in a chance of isolated thunderstorms each afternoon and evening for mountain areas, and possibly the deserts as well.  


Summertime temps are expected to reach high temps.
