Simulating Google app engine maintenance period in development environment

During scheduled maintenance period outages, the high replication datastore will work normally, but memcache will not be available.

Is there a way this scenario can be simulated in local development environment?

More specifically, can we run with memcache disabled to test the maintenance period behavior?

As of now, I go to development console and flush out the memcache after every request, to get a rough idea of how the app behaves during server maintenance. I am hoping there must be some better way to test this scenario.
