URGENT - FIRE WEATHER MESSAGE
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE PORTLAND OR
A Red Flag Warning remains in effect until 6:00 p.m. this evening due to strong east winds and low relative humidity for our area. With extremely dry forest fuels, this combination of gusty east winds and very low humidity will create extremely favorable conditions for new fire growth and for rapid fire spread.
A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now or will occur shortly.
The area burn ban remains in effect until further notice, no flames with the exception of BBQ's. Please use caution with any open flame or anything that could create a spark.
