Yesterday the National Weather Service warned that the hot Santa Ana winds were making a comeback, bringing warmer weather and fire danger to Southern California this weekend. But now we're hearing it's going to be more like a heat wave, which the Daily Breeze correctly calls "a significant and abrupt change" to our current weather. A high pressure system will hit the southland starting Friday and lasting throughout the weekend. While the beaches will reach highs in the 70s and 80s, other inland areas can expect temperatures in the 90s and 100s.
