Red Flag Warning for gusty offshore winds and low humidity: Santa Cruz Mountains, Santa Lucia Mountains, mountains of interior Monterey County and San Benito County, North Bay Mountains, East Bay Hills and Diablo Range.

A Red Flag is an NWS tool that indicates imminent fire danger. A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now, or will shortly. During these times extreme caution is urged by all residents, because a simple spark can cause a major wildfire.

The red flag warning will remain in effect from 11 p.m. Wednesday to 5 p.m. October 12.

The warning is in effect for any area "above 1,000 feet in the San Francisco Bay Area" and at similar elevations in San Benito and Monterey counties.

"Any fires that develop will spread rapidly", the National Weather Service Monterey Bay said.

"These winds will not be as strong as last Sunday night's winds".

Friday and Saturday will see a Fire Weather Watch throughout the region, a similar warning one step below Red Flag in severity.
