7 Day Forecast August 27

As you plan for the weekend, please be aware of a Fire Weather Watch in the forecast for Saturday afternoon and evening.

We’re expecting dry, warm and breezy conditions. That trifecta gives us the potential for fast fire spread. Know your burn restrictions! We all need to do our part to keep each other safe during fire season. Even the smallest spark can get a fire going in these weather conditions.
