PG&E Meteorology is tracking a dry and potent weather system expected to move through the territory today into Monday and generate strong and gusty northeast winds increasing through the day Sunday, peaking Sunday night into Monday, and possibly lingering in some regions through early Tuesday.

Sustained winds of 15-30 mph and widespread gusts to 40-50+ mph are possible across large portions of the territory.  Relative humidity values will also plummet to the single digits and teens with the onset of winds allowing for critically dry conditions and fuels being very receptive to ignition.  The areas with the highest probability of being affected by PSPS for this event are the adjacent terrain of the northern and western Sacramento Valley, Northern and Central Sierra, as well as higher terrain of the Bay Area, including the Santa Cruz Mountains, Central Coast Region and portions of southern Kern.

In Butte County the foothill communities including Cohasset, Forest Ranch, Butte Meadows, Stirling City, Magalia, Paradise, parts of Pentz Valley, Concow/Yankee Hill, Cherokee, Berry Creek, Forbestown/Robinson Mill, Bangor and the eastern extent of East Oroville are affected, but overnight some sections in Butte Valley, western sections of East Oroville and Palermo were removed from the scope.
