A Fire Weather Warning has been issued for parts of San Diego as rising temperatures and dry conditions roll into the County.
This results in conditions known to quickly fuel wildfires.
The Red Flag Warning will be in effect from 2 a.m. Wednesday through 8 p.m. Thursday for San Diego County inland valleys and mountains - specifically the Palomar and Descanso Ranger Districts of the Cleveland National Forest and the San Gorgonio Pass near Banning.
The Fire Weather Warning is also in effect for the Cleveland National Forest near Alpine.
The lowest levels of humidity – falling below 15 percent – are expected early Wednesday; humidity will return to the single digits Wednesday and Thursday.
Temperatures are expected to be in the high 80s on Wednesday and Thursday, before slightly tapering off on Friday and dropping to the low 80s on Saturday.
If a fire develops in these conditions it has critical potential to spread rapidly. Outdoor burning of any kind is discouraged, according to the NWS.
