"Extreme Red Flag Warning" east of the Sierra Nevada Mtns in CA/NV
« on: September 14, 2019, 07:41:40 PM »
This is for the period from 8 AM Sunday 9/15/19 through 6 PM Monday 9/16/19.  From the National Weather Service in Reno NV:

A Red Flag Warning has been issued for northeast California and western Nevada. It is a Particularly Dangerous Situation along the 395 corridor from Susanville to Mammoth Lakes. Strong winds and low humidity are expected Sunday into Monday. Most areas will see southwest winds of 15 to 30 mph with gusts to 45 mph, but along the 395 corridor, downslope enhancement is likely. Stronger gusts to 60 mph are likely for wind prone areas along the 395 corridor. Humidity will drop into the single digits and teens Sunday with poor recovery Sunday night. Strong winds will continue into Monday afternoon. These conditions will result in extremely rapid fire growth for any new fires along the 395 corridor. If you are in a wind prone location, have an evacuation plan ready in case a new fire threatens your location.
