Timeline of high fire danger in Northern California this week

0

Dry and windy conditions have returned to northern California. An area of ​​high pressure strengthened over the eastern Pacific over the weekend, creating a persistent northerly wind pattern. The wind hasn’t been unusually strong, but it’s stable on the west side of the valley and will remain so through the first half of Tuesday. Maximum gusts so far have been between 20 and 30 mph. Expect similar conditions on the west side of the valley Monday evening and Tuesday. This northerly breeze will cause the air near the ground to become considerably dry compared to the past few days. The combination of dry air, dry fuels and a steady breeze increased the risk for grass fires in the valley, coastal hills and foothills on Monday and Tuesday. A red flag warning is in effect for the Valley until 8 p.m. Tuesday. The KCRA fire threat rating is currently at a “moderate” level for these regions on these days. The Fire Threat Index is updated daily by the KCRA Weather Team 3. Anyone with outdoor recreation plans over the holiday weekend should be extra cautious. Things like lawn equipment, trailer chains, and vehicles parked on dry grass can all start fires. People should be especially careful when cooking or grilling outdoors.
