While north of us the fire risk is highest, all up and down the Big Sur Coast the fire danger on Sunday is high. From local weather forecaster Dann Cianca:
Sunday fire risk around the MontereyBayArea: Gusty winds over the hills along with very dry air will increase fire danger. If you’re in the highest risk area, be ready to leave your home in case of a fire and evacuate to a safe area. For all others, stay aware!
To give us just a bit of hope, two of the long-range prediction models are hinting at rain beginning 11/8. However, as is usual, the caveat is that these are long-range predictions which can change as we get closer.
From Daniel Swain, Weather West: “This is the kind of event that makes me personally nervous…and I don’t say that about all the events,” @Weather_West said. “Hopefully, we get lucky and there are no major ignitions. ….”
