Yesterday, crews were successful in bringing nearly half of the state's largest fires to full containment. 

Hot weather is expected through the weekend for the inland valley.  A chance of thunderstorms for the very north and eastern areas of Northern California will begin Sunday afternoon through Monday evening, bringing with it an increased chance of new fire starts.  Conditions in Southern California remain warm and dry, with gusty north winds expected to develop across Santa Barbara County and through the Grapevine tonight.
