Hot, dry, and windy conditions have prompted the National Weather Service out of Sacramento to issue a Red Flag Warning for the valley.
Temperatures are expected to surpass 100 degrees throughout the valley this afternoon, and wind gusts are expected to top 30mph out of the North.
Those factors, paired with a relative humidity level dropping down to around 10 percent leaves the region under an elevated risk of fires starting, and spreading rapidly. Winds will start to diminish late in the afternoon, and the Red Flag Warning is set to expire at 5pm tonight.
