Red Flag Warnings indicate that high temperatures, extremely low humidity and stronger wind are likely to increase the risk of fire hazards.

Fire danger increased in East Bay Hills and Solano County starting Sunday night. This warning will remain in force until Monday night.

The number of customers of Californian utility PG&E (NYSE:) who are still affected by weather-related power outages in the Bay Area had dropped to under 8,000 by Sunday night.

As a result of heavy rains and fog that settled onto power lines, and equipment which had been exposed to dust and debris over the long dry spell, Saturday’s outages started late. NBC Bay Area reported that almost 29,000 customers were at risk.
