By Trapper Byrne - Monday Oct 9, 2017
The high winds and extremely dry air that combined to fan flames overnight in numerous spots in the North Bay should ease after sunrise, the National Weather Service says. Winds out of the northeast gusted around the Bay Area at 30 to 50 mph early Monday, and on some higher peaks they hit 70 mph, said Duane Dykema, a forecaster with the weather service. The winds topped out between midnight and 4 a.m., and should ease off gradually during the day, Dykema said. Gusty conditions are expected to end by mid-afternoon, he said. The other weather culprit in the fires was the low humidity.
