The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Red Flag Warning for most of western Washington, including Issaquah and Sammamish, from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 13.
A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now or will shortly. A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity, and warm temperatures will create explosive fire growth potential.
In Sammamish and in Issaquah, the forecast Thursday is for sunny skies and a high of 81 degrees. No rain is currently in the forecast through the weekend.
