While firefighters are still working to fully contain the deadly Lilac Fire, another period of fire weather is forecast for Thursday night through Friday morning.
“Winds look to rev up first across northern areas early Thursday morning to afternoon, then peak into the San Diego mountains and portions of valleys Thursday night through early Friday morning,” the weather service said.
The winds will build amid “an extremely dry air mass” with brush in the back country “at record low moisture levels.”
A fire watch will be in effect from just after midnight Thursday morning until 10 a.m. on Friday.
Temperatures are forecast to remain about 15 to 20 degrees above average each day through the end of the week. High temperatures in the inland valley areas will be 78 to 83 degrees Wednesday, 76 to 81 on Thursday and 80 on Friday. In the mountains, high temperatures Wednesday will be 68 to 75 degrees, 64 to 72 on Thursday and Friday.
