*** Red Flag Warnings have not been issued the last few days because winds are below the threshold. However, it will be VERY DRY, warm, breezy, and vegetation will continue to dry out through at least Wednesday. Even if a Red Flag Warning is not issued, consider the fire danger extremely high. ***

Wednesday through Sunday… Our giant blocking high pressure will move very slowly southwest and start weakening. Precipitable water and instability will gradually increase leading to a slight chance for an afternoon shower or thunderstorm on Wednesday and Thursday and then a better chance on Friday and Saturday. Showers will be few and far between, but it’s nice to have a shot. Sadly, because we’re so dry, they might produce more wind and lightning than rain. We’ll also continue to see periods of smoke. Temps will start to cool a couple of degrees each day starting Thursday.
