Event

US National Weather Service (NWS) issued a red flag warning, or a heightened risk of wildfires, in areas of northern California state effective Friday, June 7, through Sunday, June 9. Dry air, high temperatures, and forecasted strong wind gusts present a high risk of the rapid spread of any fires in areas from Redding to Modesto, including much of the North Bay area. Authorities are warning residents to avoid outdoor fires and ensure towing chains do not drag on the ground.

Context

This is the first red flag warning issued by the NWS in 2019. California typically experiences wildfires from August through December.

Advice

Individuals in northern California are advised to monitor local weather reports, adhere to instructions issued by local authorities (e.g. burn restrictions, evacuations, road closures, etc.), and have emergency and evacuation plans in place.
