Gusty, dry winds and high fire danger prompt Red Flag Warning in Northern California

Dry winds, low humidity and warmer temperatures will keep the fire danger high through Monday evening in the Sacramento Valley.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Dry winds, low humidity, and warmer temperatures will keep the fire danger high through Monday evening in the Sacramento Valley.

A shifting weather pattern brought gusty winds Sunday. The cool breeze brought temperatures out of the 100s and into the 80s. This ended a long stretch of well above average temperatures.

A slightly warmer weather pattern is developing Monday. This will also come with a shift in wind direction. The north winds are dry and warm which will keep fire danger high through much of the day, especially for the Sacramento Valley.

Lighter winds are expected Tuesday which will lower the risk of rapidly spreading fire.
