Red Flag Warning in Northern California into Wednesday

Winds gusting at 30-40 mph with humidity in the teens

Red Flag Warning wildfire weather
Red Flag Warning in effect until 9 a.m. PDT Wednesday, September 25.

A Red Flag Warning is in effect for portions of interior Northern California until Wednesday morning.

Building high pressure will result in gusty north to east wind
developing Monday and persisting into Wednesday. Combined with
warming temperatures and lowering humidity, this will result in
critical fire weather conditions across portions of Interior
Northern California.

— North wind 10 to 25 mph with local gusts 30 to 40 mph.

— Daytime humidity will be in the 10 to 20 percent range
with poor overnight recoveries of 30 to 40 percent.

— The highest threat will be in the western portions of the Sacramento Valley and adjacent foothills, where the highest wind gusts and lowest
humidity are expected.

(Red Flag Warnings can be modified throughout the day as NWS offices around the country update and revise their weather forecasts.)
