Hot temperatures, strong winds, and the threat of thunderstorms will leave the north state with elevated concerns for fire danger this afternoon. Temperatures will be climbing into the mid to high 90's for the valley, and into the mid 80's to low 90's for the mountains Monday afternoon. Winds are starting out at around 10mph out of the North this morning, but will shift to become out of the Southeast to 10mph, with gusts to 25mph late in the day. More moisture, and a cooler airmass will increase instability in the mountains this afternoon. That instability could result in the development of thunderstorms for the Northwest corner of the state, and the far northern zones of California.Thunderstorm activity coupled with extremely dry fuels will leave the regionwith high fire danger, today.
