Santa Anas Up Fire Danger Around Southern Cal

While they are not predicted to be as intense as last week, strong winds blowing from the Mexican Border to the Orange and Riverside county lines have firefighters keeping a close eye on fire conditions.

Red-flag warnings have been issued as the strong winds and high temperatures take over the weather scene today.

Temperatures in the inland parts of San Diego are expected to reach the mid-to-upper 90s today, coupled with humidity levels dropping throughout the day.

Fire officials warn residents to take precautions as the slightest sparks can set off a fire with the very dry brush that is around much of the state. There is no rain predicted in the near future to ease the dry conditions.
