We started the week with cold air, wild winds, and now we are getting ready for summery conditions as Santa Ana winds strengthen in the county on Friday.
Santa Ana winds will lead to elevated fire danger through Saturday, with the strongest winds expected late morning into the afternoon on Friday. Easterly winds of 25 to 40mph are expected inland to the mountains, with humidity levels dropping between 5 and 15%.
Santa Ana winds will help increase our temperatures 5 to 10 degrees on Friday and Saturday, with 80s at the coast and mid-80s to low-90s inland.
The winds will shift Saturday afternoon into the Sunday with the sea-breeze returning Sunday into next week. Temperatures will drop 5 to 10 degrees from Saturday to Sunday, then dropping another 5 to 10-degrees Monday with more clouds in the mix.
