Watches & Warnings

Fire Weather Warning
Issued: 9:09 AM PDT Sep. 16, 2019 – National Weather Service

... Red flag warning remains in effect until 2 PM PDT this
afternoon for the Sierra front for strong winds and low
humidity...

* changes... none.

* Affected area... fire zone 450 western Nevada Sierra front.

* Winds... southwest to west 15 to 25 mph with gusts between 30
and 45 mph into early afternoon. Wind gusts of 50 to 60 mph
are possible for wind-prone spots along the 395 corridor.

* Humidity... minimum 15-25%, increasing this afternoon with rain
showers.

* Duration... additional 2 to 5 hours.

* Impacts... the combination of gusty winds and low humidity can
cause fire to rapidly grow in size and intensity.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

This is a particularly dangerous situation for the foothills and
wind-prone spots along the Highway 395 corridor, with strong
winds. New fires will grow rapidly out of control, in some cases
people may not be able to evacuate safely in time should a fire
approach.

Avoid outdoor activities that can cause a spark near dry
vegetation, such as yard work, target shooting, or campfires.
Follow local fire restrictions. Check weather.Gov/Reno for
updates and livingwithfire.Info for preparedness tips.
