Fire Weather in the West

16 Sep 2018, 11:46 am

Dry conditions continue for most of the west which could lead to fires spreading easily.

Multiple red flag warnings are in effect throughout the west. Conditions have been dry lately which means there are plenty of dry fuels for the fires to work with. Winds will be picking up and could gust to around 40 mph for most areas. Humidity will also be very low, around 10 percent. These conditions are very favorable for fire weather. If you are in the red flag warning area, outdoor burning is not encouraged, and if you are handling fires outside, make sure to use extreme caution.
