Santa Ana winds will warm the San Diego region on Wednesday and Thursday, with temperatures up to 30 degrees warmer than during Monday’s rain.

“The warm conditions will peak on Thursday, with forecast temperatures for inland coastal areas into the western valleys in the lower 90s, around 10 to 15 degrees above average and 25 to 30 degrees warmer than high temperatures on Monday,” according to the National Weather Service office in San Diego.

Wind gusts will reach up to 35 mph along the mountain slopes, but the weather service isn’t forecasting fire danger.

“Weak Santa Ana winds will bring locally gusty north to northeast winds near the coastal slopes of the mountains and below passes and canyons Wednesday and Thursday,” the weather service noted.

Highs on Wednesday will be 72 to 77 near the coast, 80 inland, 80 to 85 in the valleys, 68 to 76 in the mountains and around 84 in the deserts.
