Red flag warning for Sacramento Valley for Thursday

Updated: 7:00 AM PDT Oct. 14, 2021

The National Weather Service has issued a red flag for much of the Sacramento Valley and the foothills of the Coast Range due to critical fire weather conditions. The warning applies on Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. KCRA meteorologist Dirk Verdoorn says that with increasing north winds, wind speeds in the region could range from 10 to 20 miles per hour, with stronger gusts. The strongest winds will favor the west side of the valley. Due to the risk of fire, some Northern Californians are expected to turn off the electricity. Pacific Gas and Electric Co. confirmed Wednesday evening that it will shutdown parts of 11 California counties as part of another round of its public safety shutdowns.

Airy and a little warmer for the valley today. The strongest wind blows on the west side of the valley with gusts of up to 50 km / h. Less wind for the foothills and the sierra. pic.twitter.com/z8tWqz4vcy
