“A cold trough will drop into the west the end of the week with winds increasing ahead of the associated cold front,” according to the weather service. “Wind gusts on Thursday could easily reach 25-35 mph with continued post-frontal breeziness on Friday. The ongoing dry conditions along with increased winds could bring fire weather concerns, dependent on the state on the fuels.”
