Meanwhile, some very dry conditions around the area and the strong winds could lead to some fire dangers this afternoon around the area. Although Fayette County is not included at this time in the Red Flag Warning, just a few counties to our west are included in the warning for this afternoon. A red flag warning is issued when conditions supporting an extreme fire danger are imminent or occurring. The strong winds, dry conditions and low humidity are some of those concerns.
