Update: Red Flag Warning For The San Joaquin Valley

Sponsored by:

The Red Flag Warning issued for the entire San Joaquin Valley has been extended until noon today (Tuesday).

Northly winds of five to fifteen mph are forecast with gusts ranging from fifteen to thirty mph. The strongest wind gusts will occur this morning and slowly relax by noon.

Minimum relative humidity of five to sixteen percent is expected today.

The combination of gusty wind and low humidity can cause fire to rapidly grow and spread in size and intensity.

The highest threat will continue to be for elevations below 2,000 feet.

Outdoor burning is not recommended.

A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now, or will shortly. A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity, and warm temperatures can contribute to extreme fire behavior.

Continue to monitor for the latest weather conditions.
