Warmer Temperatures in the Southern States; California Wildfire Risks

Bryan Dijkhuizen

Most of the country will see warmer temperatures in the coming days; southern California will have an increased risk of wildfires.

Over the next few days, persistent upper-level ridging in the West, longwave troughing in the East, and a cutoff low over Baja California will contribute to the spread of warm air throughout most of the continental United States.

Over most Northern and Central Plains, temperatures are predicted to be 25-30 degrees above average today.

In contrast, temperatures in the East will decrease due to a deepening region of the low-pressure system and its accompanying cold front moving over the North Atlantic.

Temperatures will drop somewhat on Tuesday before a significant warm-up comes to the Northern Plains on Wednesday and expands eastward until the end of this week, says the National Weather Service.

The Rockies will also be affected by this warm period, which will be frustrating for snow enthusiasts, especially in the Central Rockies region, as most of the area continues to have a drier than average snow season compared to previous years.

Because of the generally dry and windy conditions that have evolved in southern California, there is a high fire weather risk in effect for areas of the state until Tuesday.

This weather forecast is bound to the timespan of November 29 - December 1. These forecasts are in no meaning guaranteed.
