Burning outdoors is restricted Tuesday in Michigan.
A red flag warning is in effect from noon today to 8 p.m.
A red flag warning means that critical fire conditions are either occurring now or will soon.
A combination of strong winds, low relative humidity and warm temperatures can
contribute to rapid fire behavior.
Southwest winds of 15 to 20 mph with gusts of 25 to 35 mph will occur this
afternoon as temperatures will rise into the upper 70s to lower 80s.
Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly and outdoor burning is strongly discouraged.
