SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) - Have you been to the beach lately?
The water temperatures in certain spots across San Diego have been unusually warm for weeks, according to the National Weather Service.
The Scripps nearshore buoy reached 79.5F water temperature Tuesday, which is one of the highest readings on record.
The NWS issued a computer graphic Monday that shows where the hottest temperatures, the areas in red, are being recorded.
“Water temperatures from lifeguards are 72 to 78F and this is shown in satellite imagery depicting much above normal readings (anomaly) in the California Bight,” the weather service said on Facebook.
The NWS says the month of July set records for heat in a couple climate locations across California with the warmest records set in Ramona at 117 and Palm Springs at 121.
