First Warning Forecast:

Temperature roller coaster ride for the Memorial Day Weekend

Updated:

It will be warm and summer-like this afternoon with temperatures reaching into the upper 80's. High pressure off shore will allow for a westerly breeze to heat us up. A few spots may even touch 90 in the lower valley with low humidity and a nice breeze so it will feel fairly comfortable despite the high temps. With the breeze sunshine, an slightly enhanced fire danger will certainly be present.
