Sunny skies, warmer temperatures, and elevated fire danger are on the way for your work week. Skies are clear for the start of your Monday, and we'll be staying sunny today. Temperatures are mostly mild across our region this morning, but you still may want an extra layer for your way out the door. Valley areas have dipped into hte 40's to 50's overnight, and mountain areas are starting out in the high 30's to low 40's this morning. Winds are mostly calm to start the day but will be picking up. Winds will be sustained up to 15mph out of the North, with the potential for gusts up to 25mph this afternoon. Humidity is starting out in a good range early today, but is projected to dip into the 15 to 25 percent range this afternoon. Temperatures are on the rise for this week. Valley areas will top out in the mid 80's this afternoon, and mountain areas are projected to end up in the 60's to 70's later today. The gusty winds and low humidity will bring more concerns to fire danger today. Fire danger will become a bigger concern by the middle of this week.

Skies will be staying sunny and temperatures will become slightly warmer through the middle of this week. Valley areas are projected to top out in the low to mid 80's for the entire work week. Winds will start to become a bigger concern on Wednesday and Thursday. Sustained winds are projected to be out of the North to 25mph, with gusts up to as strong as 40mph during that time. Humidity is also going to be a factor in the higher fire danger ahead. We could see humidity dip into the single digits to teens on Wednesday and Thursday. The dry and windy weather is the main driving factor for elevated fire danger ahead. This could be an event that prompts another round of Public Safety Power Shut Offs mid to late this week. Winds will start to slack on Friday and humidity will not be quite as low. Fire danger is not expected to be as high on Friday or this weekend. Temperatures will cool back into the high 70's to low 80's in the valley on Saturday, and then into the low to mid 70's on Sunday.
