1- No watches here today at the time of this typing along the fire weather situation but it’s very dry and the danger is still critical. Humidity will be a little higher today but depending on where the dryline sets up will depend on where the deeper moisture is. Our best chance for rain will be late evening and overnight IF it occurs.
2- WHAT IF?
We have a cold front coming on Monday, we have a dryline setting up out west, we allegedly have moisture coming our way. Timing for showers and thunderstorms will be iffy.

We’ll see what happens.
