The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning until 8 p.m. today.
Under the current conditions, “any fires that develop may quickly get out of control and become difficult to contain,” the warning states.
“The combination of windy conditions and low relative humidity values will lead to a more rapid spread of any fires that may develop,” the warning advises. “Residents are encouraged to exercise fire prevention with any outdoor activities and properly dispose of smoking materials.”
A Fire Weather Watch, which also advises of critical fire weather conditions, is in effect for Thursday.
