Be careful out there.

It’s going to be mostly sunny today with a high near 64 and early winds at 13 to 18 mph, according to the National Weather Service.

But with wind speeds increasing to 27 to 32 mph in the afternoon, with gusts up to 48 mph, a red flag warning has been issued for noon to 6 p.m. That means the fire danger will be very high, particularly because, in addition to the strong wind, the humidity will be low.

It’ll stay windy overnight, when the low will be around 34 and there’s a 10 percent chance of rain before midnight.
