Elevated Fire Danger
Add gusty southwesterly winds to the equation and you get a day featuring an elevated risk of fires. There are no fire weather alerts in effect, but there doesn't need to be one in place for fires to burn. It is highly discouraged to engage in any outdoor burning on Sunday. Additionally, throwing cigarette butts outside could spark a fire due to the very dry conditions that will be in place. There is not a legitimate rain threat in the forecast until Friday. That will be associated with a very strong area of low pressure and associated cold frontal boundary. Rain and even thunderstorms seem possible Friday morning through Saturday morning.
