Many areas of northern Arizona will be under Red Flag Warnings today and that area will increase on Sunday! Red Flag Warnings are issued with sustained winds combined with very low relative humidity combine to cause Critical Fire Weather. This means any fires that start will easily spread!

Fire restrictions remain in place throughout the entire region! These restrictions are in effect for visitors as well as residents and should not be taken lightly. Law enforcement will issue citations for violations.
