“Just because we’re seeing things subside tonight, the fire threat is going to continue into Wednesday,” Taylor said Tuesday evening.

High wind warnings will remain in effect until 4 p.m. Wednesday especially in the foothills of the county, where gusts could reach speeds of 65 mph, National Weather Service experts said.

Residents can expect the heat to stick around until Thursday evening with the temperatures peaking at 103 in western valleys.
