Cooler temperatures will bring fire watch winds

A cold system from the north will push the heat wave out of Northern California Tuesday but bring fire watch force winds with it.

The National Weather Service in Sacramento said the unseasonably hot weather will remain today with 89 degrees predicted for the western Nevada County foothills.

As the new front moves in Tuesday, temperatures will drop to the mid-70s, with wind gusts up to 20 mph.

The fire watch is in effect for Wednesday morning through Thursday afternoon with winds gusting up to 24 miles per hour, the weather service said.

Temperatures will dip into the mid-60s Wednesday, then climb back into the mid-70s Thursday, staying there through the weekend.

Those wishing to burn brush piles need a permit from any area fire station. They should also call the burn day information line at 274-7928 to see if burning is permissible that day.
