Posted: Updated:

Marginally cooler temperatures and lighter winds are in store for San Diego County today but very low humidity will persist through this evening, forecasters said.

A red flag warning signifying a high risk of wildfire was issued by the National Weather Service Tuesday morning and is scheduled to expire at 9 p.m.

Until then, 15 mph winds are likely in the valleys and mountains, with gusts up to 25 mph in the mountains, NWS forecasters said.

Highs 10 to 20 degrees above average for the season have been recorded around the county since Tuesday. The Weather Service said highs today will be 83 to 88 degrees near the coast, 93 to 98 inland, 96 to 101 in the valleys, 86 to 96 in the mountains and 100 to 105 in the deserts.

Friday through Sunday will remain very warm, but humidity is expected to recover slightly as weak onshore flow returns to the region, according to the Weather Service.
