Fresno wind to stop late Tuesday, start again Wednesday night

Windy conditions in Fresno are expected to cease Tuesday night but pick back up again late Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Modesto Vazquez, a meteorologist at the weather service in Hanford, said the low pressure system bringing cooler air to the Valley is causing wind gusts of about 25 mph. He said the wind would calm down Tuesday night but start up again Wednesdayaround 6 p.m.

The wind is expected to stay between 10 to 20 mph throughout Wednesday afternoon, said Brian Ochs, meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Hanford.

Vazquez said the wind will continue through Wednesday night and stop again Thursday morning.

The wind will slow to about 5 mph on Thursday, Ochs said.

Temperatures are expected to remain in the mid-70s, with Tuesday hitting 77 degrees, Wednesday reaching 74 degrees and 75 degrees on Thursday.

Rain is not expected in the next seven days, but there is a slight chance of rain in the Sierra mountains for Sunday night, Ochs said.
