Sunny skies, warmer temperatures, low humidity values, and stronger winds are all ahead for your Tuesday Farmcast. The warmer, dry, and windy conditions will result in a significant increase in fire danger this afternoon, and residents are being asked to use caution when using heavy machinery in or around dry brush. Temperatures are starting out in the mid 50's to low 60's for the valley this morning, and are projected to climb into the low to mid 80's this afternoon. Sustained winds will be out of the North to 20mph in the valley, with gusts possible up to around 30mph. Humidity values will fall to around 15 percent this afternoon. Your Tuesday morning sunrise is set for 7:22am, and sunset will be at 6:20pm.
Temperatures will continue to warm on Wednesday, but only by a couple of degrees. Humidity values will stay low, but winds should not be as strong by Wednesday afternoon, and will continue to diminish on Thursday. Temperatures will fall by a couple of degrees on Friday, but will quickly rebound back into the mid 80's for the upcoming weekend. The next chance for showers will arrive in the region on Sunday night into Monday of next week.
