Red Flag Warning issued for Thursday, weaker winds expected


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KTXL) — A Red Flag Warning will be in effect for parts of the Valley on Thursday. 

Sustained winds up to 20 mph, with gusts up to 35 mph, are expected. Low humidity will also be a concern, ranging from 10% to 20%.

This wind event will be much shorter and slightly weaker than the one seen Monday and Tuesday, but it will still be another day of critical fire weather.

Winds throughout California caused damage and facilitated destructive fires this week. In one fire, a man was badly burned when his mobile home caught fire.

Power shutoffs also affected about 25,000 customers, and shutoffs may again occur Thursday.

The warning will last from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
