This is your Part II of the coming deadly heatwave that will nail Southern California by the end of this week. I’ve dodged skeptical people and let me tell you.. never listen to a word they say because listening to me vs them is the difference between life and death sometimes and you’ll find out why by reading on.
I have been watching who shares my articles on Facebook and what public groups have them and let me tell you I am utterly displeased seeing “Don’t listen to him”, especially on the Disneyland groups. Stating that it will be 86 this Friday into the Weekend is totally irresponsible and those people reading that wrong forecast will be the ones that are in the most ‘deadly’ danger because it’ll be near 110F with this event at the park! Same goes with Magic Mountain and Knotts. If you are new to my work, listen to it .. because there isn’t a source alive that surpasses the lead-time I’ll give you.
Ongoing Text Ad: Furthermore we parted with our main summer-time advertiser and will need Summer help each year.. but you made it possible! If you are still interested (and I had many asking me how they can pitch in for this) in doing addon and upgrade help you can donate to SCWF in just a couple clicks by CLICKING HERE. Maybe we can get the video green-screen forecast software back!. I do appreciate all the help, especially making the goal to remain operational through the Summer. We are now complete on the goal keep operations this Summer without an advertiser. Thank you everyone who has helped. At this point it is about upgrades/addons as the server operations are now paid for.
I’ve decided to change the high temperatures for Friday to be hotter than Saturday. Still.. both days will be hot, but on Saturday it’ll be more humid. The reason for this slight change is because on Friday we should be relatively clear and dry. Now.. Saturday we introduce monsoon moisture into the region and some clouds/shower/thunderstorm activity could limit the high temperature that day. But.. because of the moisture in the area the heat index will exceed that of Friday by a long-shot so even though the actual air temp will be a few degrees ‘cooler’ than Friday.. the index (humidity feel) will make it feel more miserable, even in areas passing shower/thunderstorm activity hits.
As of now it is looking the same with the increase after the 4th of July and maximizing Friday into the Weekend. The moisture hangs around for several days however so we are going to see that continued threat of shower/thunderstorm activity in all sectors east of Santa Barbara/San Luis Obispo County.

The threat extends into the beaches as well this weekend. There was once a time when NOAA stated it would be clear at the beach and I had thunderstorm forecasts out. Venice Beach was hit with such a storm and 10 people were hit by lightning and fatalities happened. This is why when it comes to weather, Southern California Weather Force is far more advanced and should always be listened to.
Thunderstorm Model: I will be using this event to further develop my thunderstorm forecast model for the monsoon season. It has had success in Arizona and New Mexico within the last week so confidence is high that the right micro-climate alerts will be issued.
Heading to Vegas? Same exact scenario there as here.
Heading to Catalina Island this weekend? Choppy waters on Thursday and Friday with a chance of shower/thunderstorm activity over the weekend. Overnight lows will also be warm so keep that in mind. Hiking must be met with extreme caution there as heat index values will be equal to Hawaii.
Hurricane Fabio is now south of the area and strengthening. The track takes him far south of here, however on Thursday the surf will be elevated, enough for alerts to go out with south facing beaches, including ‘The Wedge’ in Orange County. So remain alert for rip currents and high surf and stay safe.
A bit of a ‘break’ after Monday but more heat/humidity will be on the way soon after with July ending up to be opposite of May and June.
Things to keep in mind with this event.
- This is monsoonal moisture, moisture from Mexico/Arizona and it will vary who gets what. You could get a downpour while the next city sees nothing.
- Friday should be the hottest day and drier but the heat index over the weekend will resemble Southern Texas.
- The overnight lows will be in the upper 70s to even 80 over the weekend. This means that sleep will be tough without AC.
- Rolling black-outs will happen with this event. The power consumption will be too great, especially overnight. Prepare for power to go out.
- This is NOT a forecast. I am 100% sold on the above happening and if that is true then prepare for it.
- Official Heat Warnings will come out this week on Southern California Weather Force.
- I am taking on official duties and forecasts for this event so keep tuned to Southern California Weather Force on Facebook for updates.
- Advice from me is to take any app/site you have and trash it.
- Drink plenty of water and eat saltine crackers to replenish the salt lost in the body.
- Don’t leave pets and kids in the cars. Window patrollers will be everywhere.
- Check the elderly neighbors or the sensitive to heat during peak hours.
- STAY SAFE. I wouldn’t be hiking.
