6: 35 p.m. PDT Oct. 10, 2021

Forecast for wind gusts, Sunday night through Tuesday, Northern California. NWS Sacramento, at 1 p.m. PDT Oct. 10, 2021.

Much of California between Los Angeles and Redding will be under elevated fire danger or Red Flag Warnings Monday and Tuesday. Strong north winds are expected to start Sunday night and peak Monday. They will continue through Tuesday. Although temperatures will not reach the same heights as in Santa Ana wind events, they will be much higher than usual and relative humidity will be lower.

In the North Bay, for example, winds will develop late Sunday evening from the north at 30 to 40 mph, and will be locally higher near favored gaps, canyons, and in the Valley. Minimum humidity will drop to 10 to 25 percent Monday and slightly lower on Tuesday. Overnight recovery will be 25 to 50 percent. Any fires that start could quickly spread.

#RedFlagWarning in effect for central and northern California, from Shasta County down to Kern County from Sunday afternoon till Tuesday evening due to gusty winds and low humidity. This is #CriticalFireWeather so use caution outdoors. More tips: https://t.co/TRIM6OtIun pic.twitter.com/TxbtaBYKw4
