Strong winds will be at a minimum through the weekend, although a noticeable increase in southwest afternoon wind speeds is likely Sunday.
In the southern region, A strong ridge of high pressure is expected to bring a return of hot, humid weather this weekend. Temperatures will begin to climb, and by the weekend highs will be up to 105 in the valleys and lower foothills.
The San Joaquin Valley will see readings close to 110 with desert temperatures up to 115. Surface gradients will trend northerly which will result in northwest afternoon winds of 15-25 mph along the Central Coast this weekend.
