Wind Conditions Ease; Temperatures Start To Return To Normal


The winds that have battered San Diego County all week, sparking several small brush fires, have eased and a red flag warning issued because of the dry, hot conditions has been lifted, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures will begin Friday to return to the normal range, with highs along the coast reaching 82 to 87 degrees and inland temperatures reaching 90 to 95. The mountains will have highs of 80 to 88, with the desert seeing highs of 96 to 101. The weather service said temperatures should continue to drop through the weekend.

The forecast calls for light winds Friday, which should give firefighters some relief. They were kept busy Thursday with small brush fires in Lakeside, Rancho Peñasquitos and Spring Valley.

No homes caught fire in the three blazes, though a shed burned and some pigs were killed in the Spring Valley fire.
