A weather system moves in Friday will bring cooler temps, higher humidity, and lower mixing heights. Wetting rains of a quarter to half inch are forecast for fire zones 674, 686, 101 Friday and Friday night. The chance of rain extends further west, but confidence isnt as high for wetting rains at this time. The weekend into next week will feature cooler, more seasonal temperatures and occasionally breezy west winds. A strong cold front looks to push through around the middle of next week bringing windy conditions. Temperatures look to trend much cooler toward the end of next week with cold overnight lows and possibly some high elevation snow.
