Increasingly higher temperatures will reach dangerous levels over the next few days. The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat watch that will be in effect from 10 a.m. Friday through 8 p.m. Sunday. Temperatures in Borrego Springs and Ocotillo Wells will likely reach 115 degrees with high humidity. Meteorologist Jodi Kodesh warned “Anyone who lives in or will be traveling to the deserts this week needs to be very careful. In these high temperatures and humidity, the body cannot adequately cool itself. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke will be of major concern.”
