The Senate is set to vote on a disaster aid bill Monday that will affect funding for California wildfire recovery.

However, a disagreement over hurricane relief for Puerto Rico is putting the bipartisan-backed disaster aid bill in jeopardy.

Senate Republicans are taking a hard line in denying democratic demands for more aid for Puerto Rico, which was devastated by back-to-back hurricanes in 2017.

A fire weather watch has been issued from 1pm Monday to 11am Wednesday in the Valley and foothills due to dry and gusty conditions. We'll warm up next week but next weekend is looking much much cooler and wet.
