Do not be fooled by the thick fog these last few days. It is not rain, and won’t lower the fire danger risk.
From Daniel Swain, Weather West (https://weatherwest.com/) : “Strong warming trend across California into weekend & next wk, w/record highs possible (into 80s & even 90s in few spots). Still no rain next 7-9 days. Beyond that, mixed signals. Modest possibility of precip, but also of offshore wind events. Which will come first?”

Long cord for hanging around neck, and a protective cover. This is what it looks like:
Now I need to figure out how to use it!
