A Red Flag Warning will go into effect on Tuesday from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
This means we will see strong winds (20-25 mph with 35 mph gusts) and dry conditions. In these weather conditions, fires are easier to develop and if they do get started, they can and will spread rapidly.
These winds are all due to a cold front moving in, which is expected to arrive Tuesday afternoon. Winds will continue to stay rather strong through Wednesday, before backing off Thursday.
The second cold front moves in Thursday into Friday, which is expected to bring in a big cool down, with highs in the low 70s, and push in humid air into our region.
On top of that, winds are going to strengthen Thursday night into much of Friday as this cold front moves in.
Storm chances will also increase Friday and stick around through the weekend as another system moves in.
Mother’s Day weekend looks to be cool with highs in the upper 70s with a 10 to 20 percent chance of storms and calm winds.
