Again today, we have increased fire danger, with even higher winds possible.

Humidity remains low, as well, so avoid outdoor burning.

The weekend will be sunny, but cooler. Saturday’s high will be 68, with northeast wind around 5 mph, calming in the afternoon. The low Saturday will be 44.

Sunday will be partly sunny and 68, with a low of 48.
