Thousands of California Firefighters Battle Blazes and Heat




Approximately 6,100 firefighters are battling 14 large wildfires in California.

In the northern region, the strong high pressure will slowly move out. Inland temperatures will still be above normal today, but a cooling trend will bring them close to normal Tuesday through Wednesday. Southwest to west winds will increase in northern and eastern areas with gusts to 25-30 mph for a few hours this afternoon, then return at lighter speeds Tuesday and Wednesday.

In the southern region, high pressure centered over the Four Corners area will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms mainly to the mountains and deserts through this afternoon. Some shower and thunderstorm activity may occur over the coastal and valley locations of Southern California through this afternoon as well. High pressure will weaken and shift east as a trough approaches, which will bring a slow cooling trend to the area through Wednesday
