Fire weather becomes mixed bag
SOUTHLAND--As Southern Californians sweat out the heat wave, fire fighters are keeping a close eye on the weather.
Things are changing and forecaster Rob Krohn in Riverside says that could be a blessing or a curse for firefighters.
“There is a slight chance of thunderstorms. The dry lightning concern will be east and north of the fire zones, but it is something to watch out for.”
In the longer run, cooler weather is still in the Labor Day weekend outlook. Some clouds from Hurricane Jimena, which is blasting Southern Baja California, may reach the Southland but forecasters expect rainfall will be confined to Arizona and New Mexico. (INT)
