August 10, 2018 – Critical fire weather concerns for ridges and canyons Today through Saturday evening as winds increase with onshore flow, gusts to 30 mph are possible. Area wildfires continue to bring smoky conditions across northern California, especially in the vicinity of the Carr and Mendocino Complex fires.

Increased winds will help mix some of the smoke out of the valleys, especially today and Saturday. However, inversions will return early next week, trapping the smoke once again. Temperatures are expected to be near or slightly above normal into the weekend.
