Red flag warning for fire danger in Sacramento Valley is earliest ever

A red flag warning is being issued for parts of the Sacramento Valley this weekend due to potential fire danger from gusty northerly winds. The warning will be in effect from 5 a.m. Saturday morning to 5 p.m. Sunday evening when winds combine with “very low humidity and a patchwork of dry fuels,” the National Weather Service Sacramento said. The spring warning is the first red flag warning issued by NWS Sacramento. Conditions could cause grass fires to spread rapidly. Meteorologist Heather Waldman says she expects strong northerly winds Saturday and Sunday. The highest gusts will be on the west side of the valley, 30-40 mph. The air will be very dry with lots of sunshine. However, temperatures will be cooler. Expect highs in the upper 70s on Saturday and the lower 70s on Sunday. The California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services has called on people to be prepared.
