BREAKING NEWS Public Health warns of possible coronavirus exposure at saloon in Red Bluff Full Story

Storm Tracker Forecast: Fire danger continues through Monday

Fire danger will remain high due to gusty north winds and dry conditions through Monday evening with a RED FLAG WARNING in place.

Posted: Sep 27, 2020 5:40 PM

Winds have picked up today and wil remain strong over the next day. Calmer winds next week but the heat will be back.

A RED FLAG WARNING will stay in effect through Monday evening. This covers most of our region, whether you are in the valley or in the mountains. Winds will gust from the north and east at 40-45 mph and even up to 55 mph in some gaps and canyons, such as Jarbo Gap. Daytime humidity will be 10-20% with bone dry vegetation across the region. This multi-day high fire danger event could cause spread of new and existing fires. Stay on alert if you are near a fire that is already burning. A strong ridge of high pressure will build over us over the next few days as an "inside slider" low pressure system slides down the great basin from Canada. This is the cause of the high wind event.

After Monday winds will calm down but remain dry and sunny.

Upper-90s to low-100s are likely in the Valley Tuesday-Friday as a strong ridge of high pressure parks itself over our region.

We could possibly cool down somewhat by next weekend, but to what extent is still to be determined.
