The scorching conditions, combined with the low humidity, is forcing fire crews across San Diego County to be prepared for possible wildfires in the region.

Meanwhile, the weather will be more comfortable in and around coastal communities over the period, though those locales may be subject to dense nighttime and early morning fog that could make travel hazardous, the National Weather Service reported.

Temperatures will begin to dip Wednesday heading into Father’s Day weekend.
