Dry, slightly warmer Sunday ahead of next front
No rain expected through early next week
- Warmer weather Sunday
- High fire danger this weekend
- Roller coaster weather next week
A pleasant day is expected Sunday with highs mostly in the 50s across our area. More clouds may develop over western counties as a front moves in. We don’t anticipate and precipitation with this system aside from a slight chance far to the north.
The low humidity combined with the leaf debris on the ground means there’s a high fire danger over the weekend. Use caution when discarding wood stove ashes and cigarettes. If a brushfire does start, it can quickly get out of control.
We begin the week on the chilly side with highs in the 40s in most areas. A gradual warming trend is expected by the middle of the week as high pressure builds in. Look for limited shower chances as well this week.
This means the risk of forest fires continues along with the drought situation which has expanded to include areas across the Southside.
Many areas are ending the month of November with rainfall totals 1-3″ below average.
