According to the National Weather Service, a warming trend began Monday, with high temperatures rising to well-above normal levels by the middle of the week.
Forecasters predict Thursday and Friday will be the warmest days of the week, with temperatures ranging from 92 to the triple digits for interior regions and 70s to 80s for coastal areas. High temperatures will rise about 5 to 10 degrees each day through Thursday or Friday, the NWS added.
Not only do warmer temperatures enter the forecast, but so do the Santa Ana winds.
Because of those dry Santa Ana winds, you can also expect humidity to be on the low side.
Fire weather conditions are expected for the mountains and valleys through Friday, according to the NWS.
