Chance of rain for the county


LAKE COUNTY Increasing southwest winds combined with an unseasonably strong low pressure system off the coast will sweep a chance of rain into Lake County overnight bringing cooler temperatures for today and tomorrow, according to the National Weather Service in Sacramento (NWS).

But until that happens, a red flag warning for fire danger has been issued due to the current low humidity and increasing winds by the NWS.

Breezy Southwest winds will blow in from the coast across interior California later today and into this evening bringing cooler temperatures and increasing clouds, NWS reported.

Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms may occur in the evening and overnight in Lake County. Tomorrow will be overcast with a 40 percent chance of light rain, predicts the NWS.

The NWS predicts a return to warmer and drier conditions which are more typical by the end of the week.
