The possible storms along with low humidity and wind gusts up to 25 mph mainly over ridges and higher peaks could mean fire starts from dry lightning. You are encouraged to have your emergency plan in place, and a go-bag ready just in case. The Red Flag Warning is in effect until 8 o’clock this evening.
