Red Flag Warning

A red flag warning has been issued for areas west of Interstate 75 in northwest Ohio.

This warning is issued when a combination of conditions could cause increased fire danger.  Very warm temperatures, combined with dry ground conditions, gusty breezes and very low humidity will allow any fires or sparks to quickly spread.

Rainfall for October is running more than half an inch below normal.  Just since September 1, rainfall is running almost two inches below normal.
