Excessive heat was forecast for San Diego County inland areas Sunday and Monday, while coastal areas remain under the influence of the marine layer, with patchy low clouds and fog each night and morning, the National Weather Service said.

Isolated light showers or thunderstorms may develop over the higher mountain peaks this weekend, with a better chance early next week, forecasters said.

The heat was expected to begin to ease on Tuesday as the upper-level high over the Southwest weakens.

Sunday’s highs were expected to be 116 to 121 degrees in the deserts, 92 to 102 in the mountains, 90 to 95 near the foothills, 71 to 76 along the coast and 77 to 82 farther inland.

Very hot weather, gusty southwest-to-west winds and minimum daytime humidity of around 15% was expected to create elevated fire weather conditions near and below the desert passes.
