Red Flag Warning are in effect through 7 PM eastern for central sections of Florida. This means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now or will shortly. A combination of low relative humidity, dry vegetation and high temperatures can contribute to extreme fire behavior. After a breezy morning Friday, lighter wind moves in for the afternoon, but humidity drops significantly, leading to the fire threat. Humidity is forecast to dip down to upper 10s and 20s during the afternoon, meaning the air will be very dry. Areas that will be affected include Orange, Seminole, and Osceola counties as well as areas west of Interstate 95 in Brevard County. According to the National Weather Service, any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly and that outdoor burning is not recommended. For WeatherNation, I am Meteorologist Marcus Walter.
