* Relative humidity... improving recovery tonight... but generally
just 40 to 60 percent on slopes and ridges.

* Thunderstorms... a threat of thunderstorms over the south half of
the forecast area this evening then spreading north thereafter.
Very little rainfall with any storm... especially those over the
north half of the region.

* Impacts... the combination of an increasingly unstable
environment... critically dry fuels and possible lightning may
result in rapid fire spread of on-going incidents and the
potential for new starts.

Precautionary/preparedness actions... a red flag warning means
that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now...
or will shortly. A combination of strong winds... low relative
humidity... and warm temperatures will create explosive fire
growth potential.
