The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag warning starting at 5:00 PM Friday evening (12/15) and extending through10:00 AM Sunday (10/17) morning due to the gusty northern winds on the ridge tops and low humidity predicted in the East Bay Hills. Everyone is urged to take precautions during this period.

The NWS red flag warning notes that any fires that develop will “likely spread rapidly”.
