Extreme Fire Weather Threat in Southern California; Chilly Weather for Much of U.S.; Heavy Rain in South Plains
Cold, Canadian air will cause Santa Ana winds to develop across southern California for extreme fire weather threats early this week, and critical Fire Weather threats through mid-week. This cold air is also plunging much of the U.S. below to much below normal temperatures, especially, across the High Plains. Heavy rains continue across the South Plains as moist air rides over this cold front.
