High Temps, Wind, Low Humidity Prompts NorCal Fire Warning

SACRAMENTO (CBS SF) — The National Weather Service issued a fire weather watch for more than a dozen Northern California counties, including Solano County.

Warmer-than-average temperatures, gusty winds and low humidity forecast in Solano County this weekend are expected to create heightened fire hazards, according to the weather service.

The prime fire conditions mean any blaze sparked in this area is more likely to spread, according to a weather service statement.

The fire weather watch was set to go into effect Saturday evening and last until Sunday morning.
