Dry and gusty conditions will increase the danger of fire again Wednesday in San Diego County, according to the National Weather Service.

A low-pressure system over the West will continue to bring cooler temperatures and gusty winds through Thursday, forecasters said.

Humidity levels will drop to between 5-10% in the county mountains and deserts Wednesday.

Wind gusts blowing to the west could reach 40 mph in those two areas, forecasters said. Stronger winds are expected Thursday afternoon.

High temperatures Wednesday could reach 76 degrees near the coast, 78 inland, 84 in the western valleys, 83 in the mountains and 101 in the deserts.

Temperatures will continue dropping through Thursday, when highs in the western valleys will be in the high 70s to low 80s, according to the weather service.
