Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Central California
National Weather Service San Joaquin Valley - Hanford CA
251 PM PDT Sun Oct 22 2017

...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FOR GUSTY WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE
HUMIDITY FOR THE KERN COUNTY MOUNTAINS FROM 2 AM MONDAY THROUGH
6 PM TUESDAY...

.DISCUSSION...Surface high pressure over the Great Basin and a
strengthening ridge building into California will provide for
a warming and drying trend through mid-week. The surface high
will strengthen Monday bringing moderate offshore winds and
low humidities for elevated fire danger conditions over the
Kern County Mountains. The ridge will weaken late in the week
resulting in moderating temperatures and better overnight
humidity recovery.
