Despite elevated humidity levels, forecast wind gust increase this Saturday through Monday, with wind gust reaching between 30-40 mph, potentially higher in complex terrain. The potential for mostly grass fires will increase. Be sure to do your part to help diminish the potential for a human-caused start.
