Weather: Cool and breezy, but fire risk possible next week
(Graphic by Solano NewsNet)
After several days of significant heat and elevated wildfire dangers, the region will experience a cool down and milder temperatures heading into the Memorial Day weekend.
The forecast calls for temperatures in the mid-80s throughout northern Solano County. Benicia and Vallejo, typically the two cooler spots in Solano County, will see high temperatures in the upper-60s to low-70s for the remainder of the week.
Forecasters say the cooler weather is expected to remain through much of the weekend.
Wind will remain a factor, particularly in north Solano County, where gusts up to 20 miles per hour are expected on Thursday and Friday. Sustained wind between 10 and 20 miles per hour is likely in Dixon, Vacaville and parts of Fairfield and Suisun City.
The Delta Breeze will help keep temperatures low, but will also create significant wildfire risks throughout the region. Those risks will be elevated on Monday and Tuesday, when a new weather system crosses through the region that will bring with it dry conditions and heavier wind.
With temperatures expected to be in the 90s next week, forecasters say there is a chance that a wildfire-related weather advisory could be issued for the region.
