Brace yourselves. A heat wave moving into San Diego County is expected to bring record-breaking temperatures to some cities Friday.
An excessive heat warning was issued by the National Weather Service for the deserts and foothills while a heat advisory is also in effect for inland areas until 9 p.m. Friday.
Here are the areas expected to break records, according to the National Weather Service:
Most of these areas will see temperatures 15 to 20 degrees above average for this time of year.
Escondido, Ramona and Alpine are expected to see temperatures more than 20 degrees above average.
Typically on July 6, temperatures are in the low- to mid-80s in inland areas and valleys and in the low 90s in the deserts, according to NWS data.
In order to prepare for the heat, the National Weather Service suggests residents drink plenty of water and stay in air-conditioned rooms when possible.
Here is the county’s official list of “cool zones,” places to beat the heat during this wave.
