* 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.
*Advertencia de Bandera Roja Extendida*
La Advertencia de Bandera Roja estará vigente para las montañas y valles de Norte de la Bahía hasta las 6 p.m. de esta tarde. El viernes 16 de octubre debido a los vientos racheados previstos en la costa y la baja humedad.

* VIENTO: Vientos del norte al noreste de 15 a 25 millas por hora con ráfagas de 30 a 40 millas por hora. En los picos y crestas más altos se pueden esperar ráfagas de 45 a 65 mph. Los vientos más fuertes se anticipan hasta el viernes temprano por la mañana. Los vientos disminuirán durante el día del viernes, pero seguirán siendo ventosos.
* HUMEDAD: Bajos valores de humedad diurna, con poca o ninguna recuperación nocturna prevista.
* IMPACTOS: Cualquier incendio que se inicie se extenderá rápidamente debido a la combinación de combustibles secos, fuertes y racheados vientos del norte-noreste, y muy baja humedad.
ACCIONES DE PRECAUCIÓN/PREPARACIÓN: Una Advertencia de Bandera Roja significa que las condiciones climáticas críticas para el peligro de incendio están ocurriendo ahora u ocurrirán en breve.
