    PG&E did not shut off power in Napa, Sonoma and Lake counties Monday evening amid high fire danger across Northern California, but those areas could very well be in line for a power shutoff Tuesday, the utility said.

    The utility on Sunday warned it anticipated a power shutoff in nine Northern California counties due to the hot, dry and windy conditions.

    PG&E meteorologists on Monday examined weather forecast models and determined that they did not have to initiate a Public Safety Power Shutoff for the North Bay regions that evening.

    North Bay residents could still face a power shutoff Tuesday evening if certain weather conditions present elevated wildfire risks.
