The National Weather Service in Las Vegas has issued a red flag
warning, which is in effect from noon today to 9 PM PDT this
evening.

Colorado River valley... fire weather zones 228 and 229.


* Timing... winds will increase significantly by noon today and
will peak in the mid to late afternoon hours then gradually
decrease this evening.

and gusts around 35 mph along the Colorado River valley. Winds
across much of the Mojave Desert zone will be 20 to 35 mph with
gusts 40 to 50 mph.

can be expected this afternoon for most sites.

conditions are expected. Any fires that develop will likely
spread rapidly. A combination of strong winds... low relative
humidity... and warm temperatures can contribute to extreme
fire behavior.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Outdoor burning is not recommended. Heed all fire restrictions
and use extra caution with any ignition sources.
