PARADISE, Calif. - A parade of flags lined the Skyway this Memorial Day, which is part of an annual Paradise tradition.

While the stretch of flags is smaller than before the Camp Fire, volunteers were able to put up 85 flags Monday morning. 

Many volunteers, including help from the Daughters of the American Revolution, put up the flags along the road. They are still working on getting a new home to store the flags, though, according to a Facebook post. 

They're also hoping to get back to the 1,100 hundred flags that once lined the roadway each Memorial Day and Veteran's Day.

Sunny skies and warmer temperatures are on the way for your Friday. We'll get much warmer and will stay dry this weekend. The peak of the heat will be on Sunday. A drop in temperatures and the potential for showers will be ahead for the middle of next week.
