Storm Tracker Forecast: Elevated fire danger next week with showers next weekend

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.

Saturday has been wonderful with decent temperatures and sunny skies. Tomorrow is looking to get a bit cooler with partly cloudy skies in the Valley and the chance for a few showers in the mountains.

Once the small disturbance leaves Sunday evening, you will see clearing skies through the night. Monday-Wednesday is looking to warm up and stay sunny due to a high pressure system. However, due to the way the ridge of high pressure will be situated, with a low-pressure system to the southwest and given how strong it will be, we can expect very gusty north winds in the Valley and Foothills. The system will also mean very dry conditions with poor recovery overnight. Due to these two facts, a Fire Weather Watch has been issued for the Valley and Foothills from 1pm Monday to 11am Wednesday.

Once we reach Thursday another system will begin to drop down from Canada. This is a very strong, cold weather system that will begin to push the ridge of high pressure out of our region on Thursday. This means we will see increasing clouds and cooler temperatures on Thursday. By Friday this cold system will be completely in our area. This means highs will drop into the low-70s Friday and into the weekend. Along with the cooler temperatures, cloudier skies across the region will be seen with a chance for showers in both mountain and valley locations. Even snow will be ppossible along the higher passes and peaks due to the strength of this cold weather system.>
