Red Flag Warning Issued - Extreme Fire Danger Increases in Region
October 14, 2020 1:53pm
Very strong winds gusting 40 to 50 mph, dry air, and drought-stricken fields and cropland lead to extreme fire danger this afternoon. Red Flag Warnings and Wind Advisories are in effect.
People are urged to exercise extreme care with respect to outdoor activities that could cause grass fires. Avoid equipment that can cause sparks near dry grass or brush, limit or postpone any fieldwork until weather conditions improve, and do not toss cigarettes on the ground. Use common sense, and report fires quickly to the nearest fire department or law enforcement office.
Dry and breezy conditions are expected to continue Thursday and Friday afternoon, leading to very high fire danger again. Winds won’t be as strong with 25 to 35 mph gusts, and afternoon humidity in the upper 20s to low 30s.
Relative humidities improve notably on Saturday afternoon, reaching up into the 40 percent range. Lighter winds should also reduce fire danger. Light precipitation is possible both Saturday and Sunday night, with continued cool weather early next week.
