Be careful with recreational fires and hot work during this warm, windy weather A Red Flag Warning means that critical Fire weather conditions are either occurring now, or will shortly. Dry, hot and windy conditions can contribute to active fire behavior. In Western Washington, significant growth on existing fires has historically taken place under such conditions. Once the Red Flag Warning expires, background fire danger due to dry fuels will remain. However, the weather will be less of an aggravating factor.
