More High Fire Weather Conditions for California Wednesday and Thursday Oct 11, 2017

The fire weather conditions will continue for the state of California Wednesday and Thursday.  Strong winds, low humidity and lack of rainfall are in the forecast and it doesn’t look like these weather conditions will change in the short-term forecast.  Parts of California are already under a Red Flag Warnings and Fire Weather Watches until Thursday afternoon.

A Red Flag Warning means dangerous fire conditions are occurring now or will be occurring shortly.  A Fire Weather Watch means that critical fire weather conditions are possible.

The fire weather outlook for northern California is “Critical”.  Strong winds out of the north will increase Wednesday morning as a cold front sweeps through the region.  Relative humidity values will range from 15-25% behind the cold front. The low humidity and ongoing fires should keep the threat elevated over the next few days.

The National Weather Service in the Bay Area talked about the conditions Tuesday:

Rain is desperately needed in California, but unfortunately the forecast is not looking very promising for rain.
