High Fire Danger Continues In Southern California Through Wednesday; Pattern Change May Increase Rain Chances Thanksgiving Week

Dangerous wildfire conditions will continue in Southern California into midweek as northern parts of the state see some improvement. Thanksgiving week, a pattern change may finally occur, and that could offer some good news in the form of increased rainfall chances. Firefighting conditions will remain hostile in Southern California through at least Wednesday. Critical to extremely critical fire weather conditions are expected Tuesday, according to NOAA’s fire weather outlook. That means a combination of gusty winds and low relative humidity will lead to the potential of rapid growth for any ongoing fires and any new fires that may erupt.
