Warm temperatures and red flag warnings

Across the Northeast, the National Weather Service (NWS) has had to issue red flag warnings and hazardous weather outlooks due to the very dry (and warmer than average) conditions later on today creating the conditions that spread wild and brush fires due to any type of ignition.  So, although today will be a very warm day, the NWS does not recommend anyone in the areas with red flag warnings or any type of advisory or alert to use matches or any type of ignition source outdoors due to risk of fire spread.  So please refer to weather.gov to see if your area is at risk today.

So, enjoy the above average temperatures today, but be aware that there is an elevated risk for the spread of fire today.
