Today will be sunny and warm with highs mainly in the 70s! It will also be very windy with south winds 25-30 mph gusting to 45-50+ mph. These warm, dry, and windy conditions paired with lowering relative humidity values will create elevated to extreme fire weather conditions this afternoon into early evening.
As a result, a Red Flag Warning and a Wind Advisory is in effect today from noon until 8pm. Burning is NOT recommended today as fires would spread rapidly in these conditions. Conditions will ease later this evening with cooler temperatures and lighter winds.
