Ready for more heat, San Diego?

SAN DIEGO, California -- Enjoy the comparatively cool weather. It isn't going to last.

The National Weather Service says San Diego's temperatures will rise above the seasonal average of 75 degrees through Wednesday, then spike sharply through the weekend, hitting a high of 87 degrees on Saturday. Inland valleys and foothills will come close to 100 degrees on Saturday.

And that's not the worst of it; forecasters say that high pressure will build in the Great Basin later this week, causing moderate San Diego winds in the Friday-Saturday time frame, significantly increasing the risk of wildfires in a county that's now gone more than three years with below average rainfall.
