THE HIGH 40S TO LOW 50S... MUCH THE SAME AS YESTERDAY. OVERNIGHT

ABOVE SEASONAL AVERAGES INTO THURSDAY. NO PRECIPITATION IS
EXPECTED DURING THIS TIME FRAME AS WELL. ANY PERIODS WITH
INCREASED WINDS WILL POSE AN INCREASED WILDFIRE DANGER...

THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE WARMER AND DRY
