Dry conditions, and hot temperatures will continue to drive fire concerns across the north state on Wednesday. Temperatures will remain around 10 degrees above average, with valley locations climbing into the high 80's to low 90's, and mountains in the high 70's to mid 80's. Humidity values will also contribute to the elevated fire danger, with lower elevations falling to around 20% this afternoon. Winds will be light, and that will help to limit fire danger for this afternoon, but fire danger will still be in the moderate range.
