New Flash_Fire Weather Watch_10.8.21

Gusty northerly winds and dry conditions will develop late Sunday evening through late Tuesday afternoon for the interior areas locally  in the North Bay mountains. North winds will quickly increase late Sunday night, especially over more interior portions of the North and East Bay. These winds, combined with low humidities and dry fuels, may result in critical fire weather conditions.

* TIMING... 11PM Tuesday (10/10) to 5PM Tuesday (10/11).
* AFFECTED AREA… Locally, the North Bay Mountains, locations generally over 1000 feet in elevation.
* WIND… North to Northeast 15 to 25 mph with gusts 30 to 40 mph, locally higher gusts 50 mph to 60 mph. Strongest winds are expected along the eastern areas of Napa, Contra Costa, and Alameda counties.
* HUMIDITY… Overnight recoveries 20-40%. Minimum daytime humidities 10-20%.
* IMPACTS… Any fire starts would likely see rapid spread due to dry fuels, low humidity and gusty winds. Outdoor burning is not recommended.
