Extra hand crews and personnel will be on hand. Cal Fire is concerned about the triple digit temperatures and low humidity, according to Captain Mike Mohler.

High-pressure building over the West will bring 90 to 100 degree temperatures in the coastal valleys and 102 to 108 in the inland valleys starting Friday.

You can expect mid and upper 70s at the coast on Friday, 70s and 80s over the weekend and the ocean temperature might even finally hit 70 for only the second time this year.

It should cool off a little by Tuesday but remain sunny with above normal temperatures for most of next week.
