Red Flag Watch/Warning
A red flag watch means that the conditions are favorable for a brush fire event.
In conditions when the humidity is low and winds have reached an optimal speed, the probability of a brush fire is increased.
If a watch transitions to a warning, conditions are considered ideal for a brush fire that can rapidly spread with wind speeds. Primarily used for firefighting personnel, these watches and warning can serve as a way to inform and prevent rapidly spreading fire from open burning.
