Because of the low humidity and strong winds predicted for tonight in “most areas in northwest California above 2000 feet…and a few scattered interior valleys”, a red flag warning has been issued by the National Weather Service in Eureka.

A red flag warning means that conditions are ripe for wildfires to get started and grow quickly.

“Strong east winds and low humidity will support the potential for rapid wildfire growth tonight through Monday morning in areas where wildfire fuels are receptive,” the NWS posted on Facebook. “Outdoor burning is not recommended.”
