SAN DIEGO -- Prevailing windy and dry atmospheric conditions were expected to keep the wildfire danger high in the San Diego area through late Tuesday afternoon, meteorologists advised Monday.

The likelihood of sustained winds up to about 20 mph, gusts reaching 50 mph and humidity levels as low as 5 percent prompted the National Weather Service to issue a “red flag'' warning for local valley and mountain areas.

The alert -- slated to expire at 4 p.m. Tuesday -- signifies that critical fire hazards exist or are likely to develop.

The NWS also put out a less serious wind advisory for the same period, cautioning that the blustery conditions could topple trees and make driving hazardous in some East County locales.



    I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and engaging, and
    without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something which not enough folks are speaking
    intelligently about. I’m very happy that I found this in my hunt for something concerning this.
