The heat is on for San Diego County's coastal communities since temperatures will swell up to the lower-90s in some areas.
Unseasonably warm temperatures triggered a heat advisory issued by the National Weather Service on Thursday that will last through the weekend.
Coastal areas can expect higher than usual weather conditions through Sunday evening, according to the National Weather Service. The rest of the region can anticipate a summer-like forecast.
Offshore Santa Ana winds are expected to breeze on by at 25-35 mph in inland and foothill communities, NBC 7 meteorologist Sheena Parveen said. Mountain communities, in particular, could see isolated gusts of up to 65 mph.
"This is going to be a very windy Santa Ana wind," Parveen said. "That's going to be bringing in the dry air and will really warm us up, too."
A high wind advisory went into effect Wednesday night and will last through 4 p.m. Thursday, according to Parveen. Meanwhile, temperatures will continue to climb through the end of the week.
The unseasonable warmth will continue to deliver temperatures from the mid-80s and up, with that trend continuing for several days.
“The rest of the week, really, we stay above normal by about 10 to 15 degrees for this time around the year,” Parveen said.
