Sunny and 60s, breezy with wildfire threat Thursday

Sunshine and highs in the mid-60s are forecast Thursday, with breezy and dry conditions.

A red flag warning, indicating an enhanced threat of wildfire spread, is in effect from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Breezes of 15-25 mph are expected, and with sunny skies and dry plants, any brush fires could easily grow, forecasters warned.

A brisk morning with lows around 40 and wind chills in the upper 30s was expected, but temperatures are forecast to rise quickly after sunrise.

Clouds are expected to begin moving in overnight, with lows around 50 degrees, before a chance for showers Friday. Highs are forecast in the mid-70s.

Partly cloudy skies are forecast for the weekend, with highs in the upper 70s Saturday and mid-60s Sunday.
