* Temperatures... highs will mainly be in the 50s to lower 60s

fire prevention with any outdoor activities and properly dispose
of smoking materials.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now... or will shortly due to a combination
of strong winds... low relative humidity... and dry fuels. Any
fires that develop may quickly get out of control and become
difficult to contain.
