Fire weather continues:

As often happens in September, we are getting dry east winds filtering through the Gorge and significantly increasing the fire danger. As a result, the Portland National Weather Service has reissued a "RED FLAG Warning from Tuesday afternoon through Thursday evening. A Red Flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now or will be shortly. See http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/pqr/ for further details.

This warning was issued for Fire Weather Zone 660, which includes the DNR lands in east Clark County and all of Skamania County, Cowlitz County, and the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.
