Nearly 2,000 firefighters are battling 8 large fires. In Northern California, an area of low pressure is moving slowly into the area today with light showers expected and cooler temperatures. Dry and warmer weather is expected Friday and Saturday, with light offshore winds enhancing these conditions from the lower western areas to the coast.

In Southern California, the low trough is expected to finally move inland today, bringing cooler weather and light rain. West winds gusts up to 40 mph will be possible Thursday afternoon in and near the deserts. Saturday, a weak offshore pressure gradient will form which will lead to warmer temperatures in the region.

CAL FIRE recommends that all residents be prepared for wildfire by remembering “Ready, Set, Go!” Dead trees are an extreme fire danger as they allow wildfires to spread more rapidly in these already dry, hot, and drought-stricken conditions. If you have dead or dying trees on your property, regardless of the cause, the entire tree needs to be removed to prevent wildfire. Never pile trees or materials near live, undamaged trees. Be aware that firewood can harbor insects and diseases that threaten other trees. Transporting firewood can move these pests to new locations.
