Fire weather monitoring in effect from Sunday evening to Tuesday

The fire danger will increase from Sunday evening in the hills of East Bay and north in Solano County, according to the National Weather Service.

For several counties in northern California, forecasters have said fire weather monitoring, which is used when the risk of a fire is increased but its occurrence, location and / or timing is still uncertain.

The lookout alert was triggered by a forecast of gusty sea winds that will create drying conditions from Sunday evening to Tuesday morning in the East Bay Hills, Diablo Range and North Bay Mountains.

North-northeast winds of 15 to 25 mph are expected with gusts of 30 to 40 mph, locally up to 60 mph at the top of the ridges. Winds will be weaker at lower altitudes.


The watch includes the prediction that “Any outbreak of fire would likely spread quickly due to dry fuels, low humidity and gusty winds in areas that do not get wet rains over the weekend.”
