Red Flag Warning - October 25, 8:00 PM until October 27, 5:00 PM

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning in effect from October 25, 8:00 PM until Tuesday, October 27 at 5 PM. Forecasters predict a significant offshore wind event, likely the strongest of the year, that will develop over the region on Sunday and peak Sunday night into early Monday morning. Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly. Residents are advised to exercise extreme caution during the Red Flag Warning because a simple spark could cause a major wildfire, including the use of equipment and machinery as well as smoking.
