Red Flag Warning
High Winds, Low Humidity
POMEROY / PULLMAN, WA – The National Weather Service has changed their Fire Weather Watch to a Red Flag Warning. It’s going to be fairly cool in Garfield and Whitman Counties, but high winds and low humidity make fire danger very high today.
The Red Flag Warning begins at 1:00 this afternoon and lasts until 9:00 pm. Winds will be sustained between 20 and 30 miles an hour, gusting to 50 in some places. Humidity is expected to be less than 30 percent during that time.
The National Weather Service does not recommend that you do any outside burning or start any fires because of how quickly they can spread during these conditions.
