An oft-repeated forecast today that sounds much like many in recent weeks. Temperatures will be well above normal but we will have a good dose of wind leading to high fire danger.
The day starts out with mostly clear skies and we will see similar cloud coverage throughout the day. Temperatures start a tad chilly but then will warm quickly as we head toward a high around 77 degrees – well above the average of 55 degrees to today’s date.
Winds will be calm initially then begin picking up speed by late morning. Gusts to 30mph or high will be possible in the afternoon and evening. Those winds coupled with the low humidity and dry fuels on the ground have prompted a Red Flag Warning to be issued and in effect from 11:00am to 7:00pm. Any fires that get started could grow quickly so please be careful.
