Please keep an eye on your local weather. If conditions worsen during the day, the Red Flag Fire Warning could be expanded and extended to other areas during the day, as it has been once or twice recently. Remember, too, the NWS can issued a Red Flag Fire Warning any time, so don't assume that just because you don't have one at this moment that you won't have one later.
