and then 15 to 25 mph with gusts around 35 mph in more exposed
and wind prone areas. Gusty winds will develop sooner on Sunday
at 20 to 25 mph with gusts to 40 mph ahead of a cold

are either occurring now... or will shortly. A combination of
strong winds... low relative humidity... and warm temperatures will
create extreme fire behavior.
