The pattern is changing given the expected warmer weather. Temperatures will rise into the mid-upper 80s for most this afternoon, adding a little more of a challenge for fire crews to deal with fires. When it comes to the direct impacts of the weather, the wind is on the way up today. Most places in the valley could see gusts up to 25-30mph. Combined with the dry fuels; fires will start and spread very easily. The only reason I the moderate fire danger range included with the higher fire danger level is the humidity. Today will see higher humidity levels, ranging from 30-40%. The added moisture will help limit the ability for fires to start, but as mentioned before, the fuel is so dry, it can be overpowered very easily.
