Our meteorologists continue to monitor a potential weather system that could bring dry and gusty winds to parts of the company’s service area beginning Thursday (Oct. 14) morning. According to the latest forecast, the scope of this PSPS has decreased. Today, we issued notifications to approximately 16,000 customers in targeted portions of 12 counties. This potential PSPS event does appear to be weaker than the Monday event but will still result in critical fire weather conditions across the northern Sierra, western Sacramento Valley and portions of the elevated Bay Area as well as portions of the far South.
