* WIND...Northeast to east, 25 to 35 mph with gusts to 50 mph.
Isolated gusts of 60 to 70 mph could occur in wind-prone
locations Sunday night into Monday morning.

* HUMIDITY...Decreasing rapidly late Monday morning, becoming 5
to 10 percent away from the coast. Poor recoveries Monday night.

winds are likely Sunday night into Monday morning and the
lowest humidity Monday afternoon.

behavior which would threaten life and property. Please avoid
outdoor burning. In addition, the strong winds will make travel
difficult for high-profile vehicles.

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 can
contribute to extreme fire behavior.
