Red Flag Warning For Casper Area Wednesday
The National Weather Service in Riverton has issued a Red Flag Warning for Natrona, Fremont, and Sweetwater counties for Wednesday. The warning is in effect from noon until 8:00 this evening.
The weather service says low humidities, unseasonably warm temperatures, and
strong gusty winds will create erratic fire behavior and new fire starts.
A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now or will shortly. The combination of strong winds, low relative humidity as low as ten percent, and warm temperatures can contribute to extreme fire behavior.
