Warmer weather, dry winds up to 45 mph expected in L.A. area

High pressure is expected to bring warmer weather and northeast winds up to 45 mph later this week, forecasters said.

Above-normal temperatures may last through the weekend before the ridge of high pressure begins to weaken, the National Weather Service said.

By Friday, temperatures in coastal and valley areas of Los Angeles and Ventura counties are expected to reach the mid 70s and could be slightly warmer on Saturday, the weather service said.

The strongest offshore winds are expected to last from late Thursday into early Friday, according to the weather service. Gusts from 35 mph to 45 mph will hit passes and canyon areas of Los Angeles and Ventura counties.

The agency said it was unlikely that a warning would have to be issued for brush fire dangers because relative humidity levels would not drop that low.
