(Warm, dry weather could be a problem)….For one thing, it creates a fire hazard in the mountain areas.
A Red Flag Warning is in effect in the East San Diego County mountains, between the Imperial County line and past Alpine. There have already been two suspected arson fires near Interstate 8, by Morena Boulevard. The Fire Departments in the area are asking everybody to be very careful while driving through the area. The Red Flag Warning is expected to continue until Friday morning. The National Weather Service says the dry weather and above normal temperatures are expected until at least mid next week.
