Red Flag Warnings, January 12, 2014

The extreme fire danger we told you about yesterday for some areas in southern California has grown from a two-day event to a Red Flag Warning for three days, Sunday night through Wednesday, and now encompasses most of southern California. Forecasters are expecting the very low-moisture fuels to be exposed to strong winds and low humidities.

Some areas in New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma are also under a Red Flag Warning for today, Sunday.

The Red Flag Warning map was current as of 10:10 a.m. MDT on Sunday. Red Flag Warnings can change throughout the day as the National Weather Service offices around the country update and revise their forecasts. For the most current data, visit this NWS site.
