Once again, gusty winds combined with low relative humidity will increase the wildfire threat again today, so a Red Flag Warning is in effect from Noon until 8PM for much of the area. Winds could gust to 35 mph at times.
Today: Partly cloudy and windy
Highs: 57°-69° | Wind: W/NW 15-25 mph gusting to 30 mph
Overnight: Partly cloudy and colder
Lows: 30°-40° | Wind: NW 6-12 mph
Tomorrow: Considerably cloudy, windy and chilly...sprinkles possible
Highs: 52°-57° | Wind: NW 15-25+ mph
An elongated area of low pressure along the East Coast is allowing cooler air to push into the region from the north and even cooler air will move in tomorrow before this trough moves out and high pressure returns. It will be windy again today under partly to mostly sunny skies. And the fire danger will be enhanced from noon through early this evening. Another RED FLAG WARNING is in effect through the afternoon. Temperatures will fall into the 30s tonight and not move much beyond the lower 50s tomorrow with partly to mostly cloudy skies. We still expect breezy conditions tomorrow but not as windy as it will be today. Improvement begins on Thursday with more sunshine and milder temperatures.
By Friday, a warming trend will begin. In fact, temperatures will warm into the 70s over the weekend with partly to mostly sunny skies.
