Strong Winds and Critical Fire Weather Conditions Likely over California

Critical fire weather conditions will continue over portions of California today. Very strong winds with gusts over 60 mph combined with dry humidity values will create an environment conducive to extreme fire danger and explosive fire growth over southern California. Winds are expected to diminish later today and tonight. Read More >

Rain has departed the area, but we'll be left with lots of low cloud cover and some fog this morning before gradual clearing takes place later this afternoon. Highs will be in the 50s north and in the lower 60s south.
Clouds will be on the increase late tonight, and some patchy fog could develop across parts of the region after midnight. Otherwise, winds will be light and temperatures will generally fall into the 40s tonight.
After quiet weather on Sunday, another disturbance will move across the region Monday and Tuesday, bringing chances of rain and isolated thunderstorms back to North and Central Texas. Best chance for showers and storms will be on Tuesday as a strong through approach our area. A few strong storms can't be ruled out. Stay tuned for updates.
Another cold front will move into the region this evening and overnight. This front will result in a north wind shift, but gusty winds are not expected until Thursday. Low temperatures tonight and Thursday morning will be in the 30s for most locations.
