Red Flag Warning

Red Flag Warning issued July 13 at 2:06PM PDT until July 14 at 11:00PM PDT by NWS Medford OR

...Complex fire weather environment evolves this weekend... .Hot, dry and windy conditions will remain in place over most of Oregon today, and approaching monsoon moisture from the south will increase the threat of lightning across the forecast area beginning today and even more so on Sunday. Storms will likely be dry today given a very dry sub-cloud layer. The threat for storms is higher on Sunday as the moisture content increases and storms become a mix of wet and dry. * IMPACTS...Given the recent prolonged stretch of very hot and very dry conditions, lightning efficiency will be high to very high for fire starts. Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly. * AFFECTED AREA...Eastern portions of FWZ 621, east of the Jackson/Josephine county border. * THUNDERSTORMS...Isolated to scattered high based storms that are likely to have very little to no precipitation, especially outside of storm cores. Lightning strikes outside of precipitation cores are possible and cause for concern. * OUTFLOW WINDS...Gusts up to 35 mph. These outflow winds can travel up to 50 miles away from the thunderstorm that caused it. * ADDITIONAL INFORMATION...The best chance for storms will be Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening, but isolated thunderstorms are possible late tonight into Sunday morning. Storms are likely to be dry tonight due to a very dry sub-cloud layer. Storms will trend wetter on Sunday, but remain a mix of wet and dry storms. * DETAILED URL...View the hazard area in detail at https://www.wrh.noaa.gov/map/?wfo=mfr
