Warmer, Dry Weekend in Store

Published : Friday, October 7, 2016 | 5:04 AM

Despite a week of relatively cool weather, Pasadena will heat up again heading into the weekend as residents can once again expect to see temperatures in the 90s.

Friday will see a high of 91 degrees in tandem with gusts of wind as high as 15 miles per hour coming from east northeast, according to the National Weather Service’s forecast, which also prompted a Red Flag fire alert issued by Los Angeles County authorities, but not Pasadena.

“[It applies] to the northern part of the County and Santa Barbara, but not Pasadena,” said Lisa Derderian, spokesperson for the Pasadena Fire Department, about the hazardous weather alert. “Still, there’s very high fire danger, we really want to caution people to look out for any landscaping equipment that could spark fires or any barbecuing they intend on doing.”

Saturday, which is slated to be 90 degrees, will see winds slow down a bit to 5 to 10 miles per hour coming from the east southeast, while Sunday will be sunny, have no wind at all and sit at a comfortable 87 degrees.

Monday will once again see temperatures dip as it will see a high of just 84 degrees.

According to the hazardous weather outlook, gusty offshore winds will continue to affect the mountains and valleys of Los Angeles and Ventura Counties from Friday through Wednesday, though the San Gabriel Valley itself was explicitly excluded.

The forecast this weekend through the next week is as follows:

Friday: Sunny, with a high near 91. East northeast wind around 10 mph, with gusts as high as 15 mph.
Friday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 67. Southwest wind around 5 mph becoming northeast in the evening.

Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 90. North northeast wind 5 to 10 mph becoming east southeast in the morning.

Columbus Day: Sunny, with a high near 84.
