As our heat wave continues for the Labor Day holiday Monday, our fire danger will be increasing. Gusty offshore winds are forecast to develop late Monday night into Tuesday.

These gusty winds will also bring very low humidity. Combine that with the hot temperatures from the heat wave, vegetation is ripe for new fires to start or current fires to spread.

Winds are forecast to relax Wednesday morning.
