Winds pick up Tuesday and Wednesday with high fire danger in the forecast. Cooler weather will also last the next few days with many reaching the 30s overnight in the Valley before we warm up by the weekend.

Today the weather is cool, sunny and the winds have calmed down significantly and are actually coming in from the South. Tonight will be another frigid night in the mountain locations and many in the Valley will reach the low-40s if not the upper-30s.

Tomorrow Red Flag Warnings and Wind Advisories have been issued for the Valley. North winds will be sustained at 20-30 mph with very low humidity, including poor recoveries of 20-30% overnight. Meaning we stay dry. The vegetation is also still dry as we have received no rain and we look to remain dry in the entire extended forecast. Wind gusts on Wednesday could reach up to 55 mph in some locations but the wind advisory is only for tomorrow, whereas the Red Flag Warning is for both Tuesday and Wednesday.

By Thursday we are in the middle of a ridge of high pressure. This means sunny, dry weather and a warming pattern through the weekend. No other weather systems will be near us, which means winds should remain light from the North. There is a hint we could have a wetter system moving into our region but since it is expected to happen during the middle of next week, the forecast will likely change quite a bit before the system nears. Its probably not even worth mentioning due to the unlikelihood of it, but we could all use some hope for rain with all the fire danger we've been seeing lately.

Throw on a jacket and grab those sunglasses as you're heading out the door Monday morning. We have brisk temperatures to start the day, but will end up sunny and warm for your Monday afternoon. We'll get even warmer mid week. A modest drop in temperatures and the potential for showers will finally return for your weekend.
