... Red flag warning remains in effect from 11 am this morning to
9 PM MDT this evening for strong wind... low humidity and a Haines
index of 6...

* wind... southwest 15 to 20 mph with gusts to 35 mph in zone 277
and in more exposed and wind prone areas of 279... becoming
more widespread after 1500

* humidity... 10 to 15 percent.

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 will
create extreme fire behavior.
