Weather Synopsis

Weather Concerns:
A flattening ridge of high pressure will result in seasonal temperatures and a return of deeper marine air over the lower elevations of the fire through the forecast period. Expect gradually improving overnight RH recoveries as the marine layer thickens into midweek. Diurnal, terrain driven winds will continue to prevail over the lower elevations of the fire with a return of southwesterly flow over the higher elevations and ridgetops.
