Hot Weather in the Forecast
Weather forecasters are predicting high temperatures this week, with the hottest days expected to be this weekend. Please know the signs of heat illness to address them quickly. For those who need relief from high temperatures, the County has opened its Cool Zones with two located in Vista:

With the prediction of high temperatures comes warnings about high fire danger. Power tools, including lawnmowers, are not recommended in hot weather to avoid sparks that ignite grass and brush fires.
Residents are encouraged to make their home fire-safe.
Maintain defensible fire space around homes by removing dead leaves, debris, and other flammable items that an ember can ignite.
- If you do choose to cut away and remove dead and dying plants near your homes or structures, use hand tools only.
- Be particularly careful with smoking materials to avoid accidentally starting a fire.
- Never pull your vehicle over in the grass; it can ignite a fire. Please ensure your vehicle is well maintained, as faulty catalytic converters have been a major cause of accidental fires in San Diego County.
- If you have a trailer on your vehicle, ensure the chains don’t drag on the ground while driving and spark a fire.
