.SYNOPSIS...
Local elevated fire weather conditions continue this morning in
the mountains due to gusty winds and low humidity. Lighter winds,
above average temperatures, and very dry conditions are expected
through early next week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Clear skies, low RH, and locally breezy winds continue over the
foothills and mountains early this morning where gusts of 30-40
mph continue in a few areas. Across the Sacramento Valley, winds
are generally light, temperatures significantly cooler, and RH`s
significantly higher compared to 24 hours ago.

Much more quiet weather looks to be in store for the rest of the
week as high pressure from the eastern Pacific moves over the
region. Highs will remain well above average (10-15 degrees) with
generally lighter winds expected. RH will remain low, so continue
to practice fire safety.
