SAN DIEGO – A red flag warning will remain in effect until Friday evening for San Diego County inland valleys and mountains, according to Fox 5’s meteorologist Aloha Taylor.

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either happening in the region or will shortly.  A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity and warm temperatures will create explosive fire growth potential.

Very low humidity levels will continue in the mountains and deserts until Friday around 6 p.m., Taylor said.

Winds will not be as strong Friday morning as they were Thursday.  The gusts are expected to weaken to below 25 mph by Friday evening, according to the National Weather Service.

The marine layer will slowly move in and spread through the valleys on the weekend, causing temperatures to cool off.  Chance of rain and thunderstorms could develop Sunday night and linger into Tuesday, NWS said.
