The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for the North Bay Mountains and Valleys from 5 AM Wednesday (10/14) through 6 PM Friday (10/16) due to forecasted strong offshore winds out of the north-northeast. The Fire Weather Watch is no longer in effect.

DETAILS:

* AFFECTED AREA:  North Bay valleys and mountains, including all of Santa Rosa.

* WIND:  Valley winds are forecasted to be 10 to 20 mph, gusting around 30 mph. Wind in the mountains is forecasted to be 15 – 30 mph, with gusts up to 55 mph. Strongest winds are expected overnight Wednesday into Thursday morning. A secondary period of strong winds is expected Thursday evening into Friday morning, but to a lesser degree compared to Wednesday night.

* HUMIDITY:  Low daytime relative humidity values with little to no overnight recoveries anticipated.

* IMPACTS:  Any fires that start will likely spread rapidly due to the combination of dry fuels, strong and gusty north- northeasterly winds, and very low humidity.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS:  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.
