Issued: 3:20 PM PDT Aug. 22, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Red flag warning remains in effect until midnight PDT tonight
for abundant lightning for fire weather zones 213, 214, 215, 263,
266, 268, and 279...

* wind... South Valley winds 5 to 10 mph with gusts up to 15 mph.
Terrain driven winds in the mountains 5 to 10 mph with gusts up
to 15 mph. Gusty, erratic winds likely in thunderstorms.


* Humidity... minimum humidities between 20 and 30 percent
recovering overnight.

* Thunderstorms... thunderstorms developing through this evening
with the potential for an increase in fire starts due to
abundant lightning.

* Impacts... fires that develop will likely spread rapidly.
Outdoor burning is not recommended.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning for abundant lightning means that
thunderstorms are forecast to occur with frequent lightning that
will likely result in increased fire starts. Erratic gusty winds
in thunderstorms will likely result in rapid fire growth. A
combination of abundant lightning, dry fuels, low relative
humidity and erratic outflow winds can contribute to extreme fire
behavior.
