Josh Rubenstein's Weather Forecast (Sept. 12)

STUDIO CITY ( — Southern California is getting ready for a roasting weekend. Temperatures will soar into the 100s through Saturday, Sunday, Monday and even Tuesday.

There is a very warm and dry air mass in place. This is coupled with a very weak offshore flow. The translation means warm and dry conditions for a little while.

The National Weather Service in Orange County has issued a heat advisory. There aren't too many warning and watch products available to the weather service offices because warnings and watches generally need a high humidity component, which we do not have.

There will be some high fire danger through the weekend, although it won't really be windy at all. However, any brush fire that is sparked will be serious as the vegetation is so dry and relative humidities are very low.

By next week we will see some slight cooling, but we will have to watch the progression of Odile. The storm will move north along the Baja peninsula.

We will certainly see our surf kick up as this storm gains strength to a possible Category 3. Then by Wednesday and Thursday of next week, there is the possibility that the remnants of the system will move overhead giving us thunderstorm threats.

It's still too early to tell where this system will be in seven or eight days, but for the time being enjoy a weekend of ice cream and lemonade.
