Fire danger increases rapidly as dry winds continue to strip the air of nearly any and all moisture.

Wind speeds pick up significantly by the later in the afternoon across the lower elevations.

A wind advisory goes into effect at 4pm through 11 a.m. Monday for the lower elevations. Winds will still be gusty in the hills through Tuesday morning.



A Red Flag Warning has been issued for the lower elevations & hills as NNE winds 25-40 mph with gust to near 50 mph are possible in the valleys with possibly 70 mph wind gusts in the hills.

This is the strongest wind event since 2017, so please be prepared for power outages & downed trees.

Colder mornings and warmer days arrive this week. Unfortunately, no rain is in the forecast through the first week of November.
