A cooling, cloudy haze that settled over the Santa Clarita this week is expected to give way to triple-digit temperatures by this weekend.

Wednesday’s highs hovered in the low- to mid-70s, according to the National Weather Service.

Today’s forecast calls for sunny weather with a high of 82 degrees.

The National Weather Service forecasts a high of 96 for Friday and 100 degrees or more for Saturday and Sunday, with temperatures remaining in the triple digits through the middle of next week.

A high-pressure system building over Southern California is causing the hot, dry spell. The high temperatures and low air moisture, along with moderately strong winds, will lead to heightened fire concerns across the region, the service said.

The weather should gradually cool toward the end of next week, according to the service.
