The Senate Judiciary Committee is convening Tuesday morning for the second day of Judge Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation hearings, where the panel's members will have their first chance to press President Trump's nominee to the Supreme Court on her legal views and writings.

Barrett, 48, is likely to field a barrage of questions from Democrats on the 22-member committee about her views on the Affordable Care Act, which has become a focal point of their opposition to her nomination to fill the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's seat on the high court. In addition to Obamacare, Barrett is expected to be questioned about whether she believes Roe v. Wade, the 1973 landmark Supreme Court decision that established a woman's right to an abortion, was rightly decided.

Dry weather, sunny skies, warmer temperatures, and gusty north winds will drive elevated fire danger today. We'll have even stronger winds, but cooler temperatures on Tuesday. Fire danger will remain elevated. There will also be a chance for light showers in the Sierra on Tuesday and Wednesday.
