Fire Danger Continues

Red Flag Warnings remain in effect through Friday evening for parts of the Palouse and Columbia Basin. The warnings are set to expire at 9pm. Main reason for high fire danger will be winds Friday of 10-20mph and gusts as high as 30mph possible. Temperatures will be on the cooler side Friday with high temperatures in the low 80's. That trend of cooler air likely to continue through the weekend before warming up next week. By next Wednesday temperatures look like they will be hovering once again in the mid 90's.
