A heat advisory was issued for most of Riverside County as extremely hot temperatures are expected to continue blasting the Southland through the weekend. 

The National Weather Service indicated that the advisory was slated to begin Thursday at 12 p.m. and last through 8 p.m. Saturday evening. 

Temperatures were expected to average in the upper-90s for most of the region, with some places reaching triple digits as high as 104 degrees. Low temperatures are only expected to drop to the mid-70s. 

Residents in these areas were advised to stay hydrated, remain in doors or in shaded areas and avoid strenuous activities as the elevated temperatures can lead to heat exhaustion, heat illness and in extreme cases heat stroke. 

The NWS also recommended that people check on their loved ones, especially the elderly. 

On top of the heat, CBS Los Angeles Meteorologist Amber Lee indicated that another monsoonal movement was moving through the Southland, bringing more muggy weather with it.
