It was a scorcher today at least for this time of year. Todays temperatures and winds that continue to climb are causing an alert from the national weather service.. A red flag warning has been extended into this evening and tomorrow as well. This weekends dry conditions and winds that continue to climb as well as low humidity are making a perfect climate for possible fires. Brush fires are possible at this time and this time of year. Officials warn to be careful when putting out those cigarette buds since a spark can easily catch wind and spread. Gusts Saturday are expected to climb to about 28-miles per hour. The fire department says we can expect fire weather warnings about twice a weak for the next couple of months.
