Pasadena heads into a three-day hot spell with temperatures soaring up to the 90s Friday and Saturday, the result of a combination of high pressure aloft and offshore flow over the forecast area.
Gusty northwest to north winds may also continue and possibly transition into a Santa Ana event Friday morning, although the National Weather Service is holding off doing any advisories for the meantime.
In Pasadena, Friday will be sunny with a high near 93 with a north northeast wind around 10 miles per hour becoming southwest in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 15 mph, according to the NWS forecast.
Friday night will be clear, with a low around 58 and a west southwest wind around five mph becoming northeast in the evening.
Saturday will likewise be sunny, with a high near 92, still well above normal, so anyone participating in any outdoor activities should be prepared for hot temperatures and stay hydrated. Winds will be northeast at about five to 10 mph but could gust as high as 15 mph.
Saturday night will be clear, with a low around 58.
Sunday will be sunny, with a high near 79, as a weak trough rolls across the Pacific Northwest.
