Strong westerly winds of 25-45 mph with some gusts exceeding 50 mph will continue through the afternoon.
Relative humidities in the single digits, mild temperatures, and very dry fuels will also add to the problem. All of these elements combined will provide for "extreme" fire danger.
Simply put, if you had plans to work or recreate outdoors with anything flammable, postpone these activities for a later date. If a wild fire does get going, it will quickly become out of control and its behavior will be explosive.
The Red Flag warning is in effect until 6 p.m. Tuesday.
