    Default weather forcast

    Red Flag Warning
    Heat Advisory
    Air Quality Alert
    Hazardous Weather Outlook

    Next 5 days all have 3 digits for the temperature prediction. This is not
    good or normal.

    I've never seen a "red flag warning" I thought that was a soccer thing.

    near a big river. There is dew all over car windows many mornings here...
    Plants still look very green here, but it's been couple weeks since any rain
    of note.

    I'm in the "midwest" though it should really be the "mideast"

    Got a Facebook message a friend from someone I knew in elementary
    school yesterday (lives in NC now). He said it was 53 when he wrote
    me and expected the temperature to rise to +/-105 by the weekend.
    Not finding the message at the moment, but I know the high was well
    over 100 and less than 110. That's a huge fluctuation for such a
    short amount of time!

    Here's a home photo of the fire near Colorado Springs... scary stuff

    Three digits here in Southern Ontario (specifically Kitchener) is rare
    if ever.
    I just checked daily high records, and the record is 36.5C. 36.5 *
    9/5 + 32 = 97.7F
    When I was in Edmonton, I was told that the temp never exceeded 30C.
    = 86F.
    The summer I was there was crazy hot with temps at 38C = 100.4F.
    Crazy heat up north. .

    Red flag here in Iowa doesn't ever mean wildfires, at least that I
    know of. It's high temps plus humidity.

    Yeah, way too much humidity for there to be a realistic worry about
    wildfires, although it is possible to have a grassfire. We're in a
    drought.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was the mountains, where it can be 100
    one day and snowing the next... but summertime in Iowa? Wow.

    I'm in the basement and it's okay, but just went upstairs and it's literally
    about 30 degrees warmer up there. The wind through the windows feels like
    when you open the oven to take a pizza out (or baked chicken, for you
    carnivores)

    Denver had large temperature swings... Once I rode my bike from Bergen Park
    near Denver (about 7,800 ft) to the top of Mt Evans (14,200 ft). It was in
    the upper 80s in Bergen Park. At the top of Mt Evans, it started snowing!
    Took about 6 hours to get to the top, and about 45 minutes to get back down.
    Greatest 45 minutes of bike riding I have ever had. ALL downhill.

    Red flag here in Iowa doesn't ever mean wildfires, at least that I
    know of. It's high temps plus humidity.


    Here's the official definition of a Red Flag Warning from the National
    Weather Service website:

    -----------------------

    Red Flag Warning


    A term used by fire-weather forecasters to call attention to limited weather
    conditions of particular importance that may result in extreme burning
    conditions. It is issued when it is an on-going event or the fire weather
    forecaster has a high degree of confidence that Red Flag criteria will occur
    within 24 hours of issuance. Red Flag criteria occurs whenever a
    geographical area has been in a dry spell for a week or two, or for a
    shorter period , if before spring green-up or after fall color, and the
    National Fire Danger Rating System (NFDRS) is high to extreme and the
    following forecast weather parameters are forecasted to be met:

    1) a sustained wind average 15 mph or greater

    2) relative humidity less than or equal to 25 percent and

    3) a temperature of greater than 75 degrees F.

    In some states, dry lightning and unstable air are criteria. A Fire Weather
    Watch may be issued prior to the Red Flag Warning.

    Maybe I'm reading something wrong, but the above response to me seems
    to be written both ways -- to argue that red flag doesn't mean
    possible fire conditions and then the Weather Service quote that seems
    to say that red flag does mean fire weather danger. ??? It doesn't
    mean that a fire will occur, simply that conditions will prevail that
    will permit dangerous fire propelled by wind.

    A wildfire is not just limited to trees. Uncontrolled grassfire is
    wildfire.
