The National Weather Service in San Francisco has extended the Red Flag Warning that began Tuesday (10/30) at 2:00 AM and will extend till 11:00 AM today (10/31). The winds are predicted to be Northeast 20 to 30 mph with gusts 40 to 50 mph at the higher elevations. Humidity to be around 40% to 50% this afternoon but lowering to 0% to 19% tonight with little or no recovery. The greatest threats will be at elevations near or above 1,000 feet in the hills. Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly. 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.
