LOS ANGELES (AP) — Inland Southern California faces more blistering heat as firefighters around the state work to corral wildfires.
The National Weather Service says high temperatures between 100 and 110 degrees will be common away from the coast Friday and Saturday while some coastal sections could see highs into the 90s.
A heat advisory in the San Joaquin Valley warns of temperatures from 103 to 107 both days.
The source of the heat is a strong upper-level high pressure system over the southwestern U.S. along with breezy northerly winds at the surface.
On the fire lines, firefighters have gained about 25 percent containment of a nearly 3-square-mile (7.7-sq.-kilometer) blaze near the Yolo County community of Winters, west of Sacramento. Evacuation orders remain in effect for about 50 homes.
