Local Wildfires & Red Flag Warning

A red flag warning issued for noon tomorrow until midnight tomorrow! “The combination of gusty winds, low humidity, and an unstable atmosphere will result in critical fire weather conditions Saturday afternoon and evening. Isolated thunderstorms are possible Saturday afternoon and evening, which could contribute to new fire starts. Thunderstorms will be capable of gusty and erratic outflows.” So, please don’t do anything to spark a fire and please keep an eye out for new fires 🔥 so we can extinguish them before they become less manageable.
