Weather Service Issues Fire Warnings Across VA

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA - Fire warnings are in effect Thursday across Virginia as a result of dry and windy conditions.

The National Weather Service says conditions are ideal for wildfires to develop and quickly spread.

Wind gusts of up to 35 miles per hour are expected, and humidity levels as low as ten percent.

Red flag warnings are in effect through Thursday evening for Central Virginia, Eastern Virginia and Northern Virginia east of the Blue Ridge.

The warnings have prompted some counties to ban open burning until midnight Thursday.
