SACRAMENTO, Calif. - CAL FIRE is stepping up protection plans for the weekend because of the possibility of increased gusty dry winds.
In a release, CAL FIRE says:
With gusty dry winds forecast for Southern California, CAL FIRE has increased its staffing and is urging the public to be extra cautious. The Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning throughout much of Southern California starting Thursday night for high winds with gusts of 60 mph along with low humidity lasting through Saturday.
