Planned Outlook

Planned Actions
Current fire behavior is minimal, new ignitions could result in extreme fire behavior and potentially rapid growth. Persistent drought and critically dry fuels are contributing factors.
Projected Incident Activity

Weather Synopsis

Weather Concerns
Deepening low pressure offshore will bring breezy and cooler weather this weekend. Things will moisten up Saturday and showers will become increasingly likely during the afternoon, but then especially at night and into Sunday. There is a pretty good chance at wetting rainfall.
Overall, south winds Saturday morning will shift to WNW in the
afternoon/ evening, then become mainly from the E or SE direction Saturday night and into Sunday. The low will wobble offshore Monday and eventually
move onshore and inland, but it will take through at least mid-week to do so. AS a result, expect the cool, showery pattern to continue. There is also
a slight chance of thunderstorms Tuesday and Wednesday. The low may finally move far enough ENE by Thursday or Friday to allow things to dry out with a moderating trend.
