...Period of Gusty Wind Expected this Afternoon...

Winds are expected to switch from southwest to northwest during
the afternoon which will be followed by a period of gusty wind.
There may be a few hours where northwest winds could gust to as
high as 35 to 45 mph, mostly likely between 2pm and 4pm.

These breezy winds coupled with today`s warm and record or near
record temperatures will also produce elevated fire weather
conditions. Be cautious with open flames as conditions are favorable
for rapid fire growth.
