Current Conditions (5 pm):- temperature - 64°F, barometric - 30.25"⬆︎, humidity - 24%, dew point - 27°F, ELEVATED FIRE WEATHER RISK.

We had a cooler start to the morning, 48*F and wind gusts between 15 and 20 mph from the northwest. While the temperature worked its way up to 64°F (high) late afternoon, the wind made it feel cool in the shade. The humidity is expected to remain on the dry side so the fire risk factor has been raised to a dangerous level.

Tonight we expect to have clear skies with an overnight low temperature around 50°F. The wind will be from the SW at 10 to 15 mph.…

Posted by Kevin Shaw on May 23, 2015 at 3:18am 0 Comments

Friday was really nice - different than Thursday in that we did have a sunny day with high temps into the mid 70s, but much drier with dew points mostly in the 40s all day and some nice breezes at times. Tonight another front has come through, with temps falling into the 50s, but much more significantly the dew point has dropped to around 30° so relative humidity percentages have really lowered. Temps should drop into the mid 40s by sunrise on Saturday. More sunny skies on Saturday, high temps in the low 70s with pleasant NW breezes, lows Saturday night into the low 50s. Sunny and warmer on Sunday with high temps around 80. Lows Sunday night in the upper 50s, then Memorial Day Monday should be partly cloudy with highs in the mid 80s, lows in the low 60s.
