9/28 – The Chief’s “Fall Conditions Continue” Wednesday Afternoon
Strong northerly flow will be in place over the region for the next few days. While we are entering a Spring Tide, the new trends in the winds to not have an easterly component will alleviate concerns for coastal flooding. So looking at it today, there may not be as much of a worry for coastal flooding toward the weekend, but we will continue to monitor.
The strong northerly flow will cause some breezy conditions in our area. Winds will be approaching 25 miles per hour, mainly in the coastal areas, with higher gusts tonight into tomorrow. A Wind Advisory is in effect today. Please be cautious when driving and secure any loose items.
The dry weather may feel nice, but unfortunately, we will still have a concern for fire weather conditions tomorrow and Thursday. Relative humidity will be between 25-30 percent during the daytime hours Wednesday and Thursday with pockets of lower percentages. This dry environment combined with the gusty winds and abundance of fuels means that fire weather will be a concern over the next few days. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for tomorrow and a Fire Weather Watch has been issued for Thursday.
