MM’s Local Weather Concerns

Even with today’s rain, drought conditions will continue to worsen across the region. Burn bans will likely be enforced through the weekend and into Monday. In fact, increasing winds on Monday could cause the wildfire danger to be even higher that day (before rain moves in later that day).
