Sunny and comfortable this afternoon, temperatures will climb another 10 degrees on Thursday with continued warming this weekend.
The winds will shift tonight with weak Santa Ana winds developing into Thursday. The heat will go up, and the humidity will go down, with relative humidity potentially below 15%, leading to elevated fire danger. Santa Ana winds will average between 15-30 mph with gusts up to 35mph but weakening is expected on Friday.
Temperatures warm another 5 to 15 degrees Friday into the weekend with highs in the 80s at the coast and 90s inland.
The weekend will be warm and sunny with summery conditions. We shift gears again next week with cooler conditions set to be back early next week. Temperatures return to near average on Tuesday.
A weak disturbance off the west coast may bring clouds and a chance for showers Monday or Tuesday, but there is quite a bit of uncertainty with this forecast. For now, it's worth a mention but the Pinpoint Weather Team will continue to track the changes.
Santa Ana season is off to an early start, so now is a good time to ensure you have defensible space around your home, go over your evacuation plan with your family and ensure your emergency kit is ready to go.
