California Fire Updates (7.14.17)

Approximately 7,500 firefighters are battling 13 large wildfires in California.

In the northern region, the Four Corners high will push westward even more so today and hang over the region with rather hot, mostly dry weather this weekend, with the warmest inland areas around 107. The chance of isolated afternoon and evening thunderstorms will increase a bit over the northwest mountains and eastern areas near the Nevada border Friday and linger in those areas Saturday. The thunderstorms will likely produce a mix of wet and dry lightning. Strong winds will be at a minimum through the weekend, although a noticeable increase in southwest afternoon wind speeds is likely Sunday.

In the southern region, A strong ridge of high pressure is expected to bring a return of hot, humid weather this weekend. Temperatures will begin to climb, and by the weekend highs will be up to 105 in the valleys and lower foothills.

The San Joaquin Valley will see readings close to 110 with desert temperatures up to 115. Surface gradients will trend northerly which will result in northwest afternoon winds of 15-25 mph along the Central Coast this weekend. North winds of 10-20 mph with gusts over 30 mph may develop Friday night and again Saturday night in Santa Barbara County. Temperatures will remain warm with poor relative humidity recovery in this region during the overnight hours this weekend.
