...RED FLAG WARNING IN EFFECT FROM NOON TO 7 PM PDT MONDAY FOR
DRY AND UNSTABLE CONDITIONS FOR FIRE WEATHER ZONES 658 AND 659...

The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Red Flag
Warning for gusty winds and low relative humidity, which is in
effect from noon to 7 PM PDT Monday. The Fire Weather Watch is no
longer in effect.

* AFFECTED AREA...Fire Weather Zone 658 West Slopes of the North
  Cascades Generally above 1500 Feet and Fire Weather Zone 659
  West Slopes of the Central Cascades Generally above 1500 Feet.

* WINDS...East 4 to 6 mph.

* RELATIVE HUMIDITY...As low as 20 percent.

* TEMPERATURES...In the lower 70s.

* MID-LEVEL HAINES...6 or High.

* IMPACTS...A dry and unstable air mass with warm temperatures
  can contribute to active fire behavior. Easterly winds during
  this time frame may aid in drying conditions even further. In
  western Washington, significant growth on existing fires takes
  place under such conditions. If a fire were to begin, air
  quality may diminish in the surrounding area.

* IMPACTS...A combination of moderate breezes, low relative
  humidity, and warm temperatures can contribute to rapid rates
  of spread and down-wind spotting on existing fires. If a fire
  were to begin, air quality may diminish in the surrounding
  area.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either imminent or occurring now. Any fires that develop will
likely spread quickly. Outdoor burning is not recommended.
