...UNSEASONABLY WARM AND DRY THROUGH THIS WEEKEND...
An unseasonably dry start to April has left vegetation drier than
normal for this time of year along the Oregon and southern
Washington coast. Breezy offshore flow has been resulting in
unseasonably warm and dry afternoons, further drying out
vegetation across the region.
While winds should generally be light today, east to northeast
winds will increase again tonight and Friday. This will result in
another round of unseasonably warm and dry conditions along the
coast Friday and possibly Saturday, with afternoon temperatures
potentially approaching 80 degrees in some coastal towns. Sea
breezes and cooler temperatures will likely return Saturday night
and Sunday.
With warm, dry, and breezy conditions Friday and possibly Saturday,
there will be an increased risk of fire spread. As a result,
extra caution is advised with fire. Be sure to check with your
local fire district before burning, as there may be restrictions
in place.

...UNSEASONABLE HIGH FIRE DANGER THROUGH THIS WEEKEND...
A period of prolonged offshore flow combined with slowly warming
temperatures will lead to unseasonably dry conditions this week.
In addition to the dry weather, north to northeast winds will
increase slightly this afternoon before diminishing this evening.
Even breezier conditions are expected on Friday as offshore flow
strengthens.
Temperatures will also climb through Friday with highs topping out
in the mid to upper 70s for the interior lowlands. Highs in the
80s are expected this weekend, although it should be less breezy.
Relative humidity values are expected to bottom out somewhere
between 20% to 30% today and may fall into the teens Friday and
Saturday. The warm, dry, and windy conditions will further dry
out vegetation that is already near record dryness for this time
of year.
The combination of all of these factors will elevate the risk of
fire spread through this week, especially on Friday and Saturday.
Extra caution is advised with fire, at least through the upcoming
weekend. Be sure to check with your local fire district before
burning, as there may be restrictions in place.
