Kristen’s Monday Afternoon Forecast

News

MONDAY: Plenty of sunshine will blanket the state this afternoon with afternoon highs skyrocketing into the 80s, 90s and triple digits. Westerly winds will increase to 15-25mph by late day – gusts +30mph. Unfortunately, the combination of heat, dry conditions and gusty winds will elevate fire danger across the state. A RED FLAG WARNING is in effect for the northern 2/3rds of the state beginning 12PM through 8PM due to gusty winds +20mph and humdity <10%.

TUESDAY: Another scorcher as afternoon temperatures climb back into the 80s, 90s and low 100s under a clear, sunny sky. Winds will not be quite as strong as what we have on tap Monday but still noticeable with speeds 10-20mph.

LATE WEEK: Afternoon temperatures will remain above average for this time of year as most of us top out in the 90s and low 100s. There is a slight chance of a few mountain storms Thursday with increasing moisture, although, most lower elevations will remain dry.
