“In addition to the arrival of the much cooler air…
A 🔥Fire Weather Watch 🔥 has also been issued for parts of the area for Saturday (10/7) as the much drier air arrives.
With low humidity and gusty NW winds of 10-15 mph and gusts up to 25 mph, fires would likely spread rapidly. Outdoor burning is NOT recommended.”
