NWS Weather Bulletin: Fire Weather Watch in Effect Monday Afternoon

Monday, September 14th, 2020

The National Weather Service in Reno has issued a Fire Weather Watch warning that, because of gusty winds and low humidity, fire danger will be critical Monday afternoon and evening.

Here in the Honey Lake Valley we can expect winds out of the southwest at 15 to 20 mph, with gusts up to 30 mph.

Higher gusts of up to 35 mph are possible for wind prone locations as well as for the ridges. Winds will remain breezy for Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons with localized critical fire conditions expected during this time.

Humidity will be at 10 to 15%, with poor recoveries during the overnight hours.

The combination of gusty winds and low humidity can cause fire to rapidly grow in size and intensity before first responders can contain them.

Avoid outdoor activities that can cause a spark near dry vegetation, such as yard work, target shooting, or campfires.

Follow local fire restrictions. Check weather.gov/reno for updates and livingwithfire.info for preparedness tips.
