periods of gusty wind with increased fire threat
         today especially over higher terrain
         few inches of snow accumulation possible at pass

approaches and moves through. By Sunday, high temperatures are
forecast to be 15 to 25 degrees below normal with 60s in the
Central Valley and mainly 40s and 50s for the mountains and
foothills. New record lowest high temperatures are possible
Sunday. In addition, forecast models are continuing to show
widespread showers Sunday as the low moves onshore. Given the

pass levels Sunday with a few inches of accumulation possible.
Decreasing showers expected on Monday.

Additional details and updates will be provided as the weekend

Public Information Statement

... Update to CA fire weather web Page coming October 17, 2016...

effective October 17, 2016, the current National Weather Service
California fire weather web site,http://www.Wrh.NOAA.Gov/firewx/cafw/
will be replaced with an updated and enhanced version.

The new Page will include enhancements such as:
* detailed hazards of red flag warnings and fire weather watches
   colored on the map
* eccda, NWS fire zones and County boundaries on zoomable map
* link to new National spot forecast Page, which GOES operational
   Oct. 17, 2016
* revised menu links

the detailed hazards of red flag warnings and fire weather watches
on the map is different than our current watch/warning map. The
detailed hazard map will highlight only the portion of the NWS
fire weather zone, that is actually included in the red flag
warning or a Fire Weather Watch. If the watch or warning is valid
for the entire fire weather zone, it will highlight the entire
zone.

The (emergency command center dispatch area) eccda, NWS fire
weather zones, and County boundaries are now clickable layers that
can be viewed individually or at the same time on the front map.
The forecasts for these are now a one-click option directly from
the map, and defaults to the last boundary chosen. For example:
when you click on the map it will bring up the forecast for eccdas
if that's the only boundary highlighted. If you then chose to add
the fire weather zones on top of the eccda boundaries, and then
click somewhere on the map, the fire weather zone forecast will
pop up.

A preview of the new website is available at:
http://www.Wrh.NOAA.Gov/firewx/cafw_new/index.Php.
