Brush Fire Warning for Orange and Seminole Counties

Orange County, Fla. — The National Weather Service is issuing a Red Flag warning starting at Noon today for Orange and Seminole Counties until 8 p.m. That means conditions are good for the spread of fires because winds will be increasing from the west or northwest up to 10 MPH and humidity will be falling to 30 percent or below.

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 can contribute to extreme fire behavior.

Also if you're at our east coast beaches, forecasters say there is a moderate risk of rip currents.  A small long period background swell will combine with a strong astronomical tide to generate a moderate rip current threat along area beaches today. The threat will be highest between 1:00 PM and 7:30 PM due to tidal effects. Beach goers should check local conditions and swim within site of a life guard. Never enter the ocean alone.
