A Red Flag Warning is in effect from 3 pm Wednesday through 9 pm Thursday for the Soberanes Fire. The warning has been issued due to strong, west to northwest winds Wednesday afternoon associated with a dry cold front. Very strong NW winds will develop Wednesday night after the front moves across the area with gusts of 30 to 40 mph expected along the ridges. Humidity will remain dry in the 20-30% range along the upper ridges. The likely increase in fire activity can increase smoke production and impacts, particularly in communities to the east and south. Check your air quality forecast daily for updates at the CA Smoke Blog, and if smoke becomes too heavy reduce your outdoor activity.
