Meteorologists warned about the risk of wildfires in parts of Northern California over the weekend, propelled by gusty winds and a high humidity.

The strongest winds are expected near San Francisco and gusts of up to 96 mph are forecast in the mountains north and east of town, the National Weather Service said Saturday.

The fire that forced 19.400 residents to flee Saturday remained under 35% by Sunday afternoon and the maximum evacuation orders were lifted.

High winds lashed through Sacramento County on Saturday.

The chimney burst out at 2 p.m. on Friday.

The fire danger warning remains in place until 5pm on Sunday.

It will further increase climate excess and make forest fires more damaging, the scientists say.

Downtown Los Angeles reached 95 degrees (35 degrees Celsius) which set a 1989 daily record, while Escondido in San Diego County went from a temperature of 102 degrees (39 degrees) according to the weather service.
