Tonight’s Forecast:
An upper level ridge moving the area will keep temperatures very warm for the next couple of days. Mainly cloudy this evening and overnight. Temperatures will be mild with lows in the 30’s and 40’s. Wednesday should be the warmest day so far this year with highs in the 80’s for many areas. Should be close to record highs. Winds will kick up during the day. They’ll come from the west with gusts over 30 mph. Fire danger will be very high with Red Flag Warnings everywhere. It’ll be tempting to get out and enjoy the warmth, but avoid anything that could spark a fire.
