Red Flag Warning in effect

The Spokane Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for the Spokane area today because of high winds and low humidity. Winds today can reach as high as 25 miles per hour on the West Plains and 20 miles per hour in the city of Spokane, said forecaster John Fox. The winds are being caused by an apporaching dry cold front. “The air behind it should result in lower temperatures tomorrow,” he said. Today’s high is expected to reach 81 degrees, while tomorrow’s high is forecasted to be 71 degrees. The Spokane Fire Department put out a press release calling for caution because the high winds can fan the flames of any fire and cause it to spread rapidly. The release reported one fire response already today to a small brush fire at Ide and Monroe near the Monroe Street Bridge.
