Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Interior Central California
National Weather Service San Joaquin Valley - Hanford CA
325 AM PDT Sun Jun 24 2018

.DISCUSSION...High pressure will continue to provide dry weather
and well above normal temperatures across the district through the
middle of the week. Humidities will change little from day to day
through the period with poor recoveries each night over the
mountains and desert. The combination of dry fuels, low minimum
humidities and hot afternoon temperatures will bring a heightened
risk of fire ignitions through the weekend.
