Twice in the past 24 hours has the National Weather Service extended the current Red Flag Warning. Yesterday afternoon, it was pushed until tonight and then shortly after 9:00 a.m., the agency said the low single-digit humidity is persisting, therefore, the warning is in effect until 8:00 p.m. Wednesday night. "A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions are occurring," they explain. "A combination of low relative humidity, very warm temperatures and critical fuels will create explosive fire growth potential."
