Red Flag Warning issued Monday for Boise, Payette and Northern Sawtooth Nat. Forests

A Red Flag Warning has been issued for the Boise, Payette, and Western portions of the Sawtooth Forests from noon to 8:00 PM Monday evening.

This is due to an upper low will drop into the region Monday bringing scattered to numerous thunderstorms.

This system is also expected to bring strong and gusty winds across the southern portions of the Idaho BLM lands from Boise through Twin Falls.

Wind gusts of up to 35 mpg are possible by the afternoon.

Humidity is also expected to lower between 10 to 15 percent during this time.

Some of these cells should produce wetting rains, due to low humidity and gusty winds any fire starts from lightning will spread quickly.

Keep in mind, a Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now, or will shortly.
