Extreme Fire Weather Threat in Southern California; Chilly Weather for Much of U.S.; Heavy Rain in South Plains

Cold, Canadian air will cause Santa Ana winds to develop across southern California for extreme fire weather threats early this week, and critical Fire Weather threats through mid-week. This cold air is also plunging much of the U.S. below to much below normal temperatures, especially, across the High Plains. Heavy rains continue across the South Plains as moist air rides over this cold front. Read More >

Additional rainfall will lead to widespread accumulations of 4 to 6 inches across much of the region. These amounts are from today (Sunday) through Tuesday night. Lower amounts of 1 to 3 inches are expected across the northwestern counties and southeastern counties. Flooding will be a concern over the next few days.
