Red Flag Fire Warning PDF Print

A Red Flag Warning for woods fires is in effect for today, with high winds on top of the dry conditions we’ve had of late.  Winds up to 35 miles per hour are already hitting the mountains and foothills, and in spite of some potential rainfall, conditions are ripe for quickly-spreading woods fires.  We could even see thunderstorms as the day goes along, but in spite of the moisture these storms would bring, the lightning is seen as a potential catalyst for fires.  Caution is urged in any outdoor activity today, and smokers are reminded to extinguish smoking materials in an ash tray—not out a car window.
