CALIFORNIA- Due to dry offshore winds in the forecast PG&E has given a two-day notice to 32 counties in Northern, Central and Southern regions of California for potential power safety shutoffs. 

The offshore wind event combined with extreme drought and extremely dry vegetation give PG&E reason to believe a PSPS would mitigate wildfire risk from energized power lines. 

Monday morning is when they expect shutoffs to begin. If rain doesn't appear or forecasted wind speeds still pose a wildfire risk the shutoffs will commence. 

Potentially affected local counties include: 

Butte: 769 customers, 69 Medical Baseline customers

Glenn: 377 customers, 39 Medical Baseline customers

Tehama: 6,148 customers, 624 Medical Baseline customers

Shasta: 2,557 customers, 197 Medical Baseline customers

Yuba: 1,226 customers, 144 Medical Baseline customers

Colusa: 566 customers, 39 Medical Baseline customers

Plumas: 309 customers, 4 Medical Baseline customers

We're closing out the month of November in a pleasant way in northern California Tuesday. We'll have some gusty wind tonight and early Wednesday, but December will begin with warmer and drier than average weather.
