The combination of above normal temperatures, gusty winds, and dry conditions will make for explosive wildfire potential over the next several days. A Red Flag Warning is in effect for much of the area today, meaning the risk for wildfires is high. While temperatures will be a little cooler tomorrow and Friday, strong winds and low relative humidities will lead to high fire danger once again. It would be wise to postpone any outdoor activities with flammable items for the remainder of the work.

Please note it is very possible these conditions will extend into the upcoming Holiday Weekend. If you're planning on having a campfire or a cookout this weekend, it is imperative you exercise EXTREME CAUTION.
