mph.

* Our greatest concern will be the Kootenai Forest/Stillwater
State Forest/Rexford district and all locations east of these.
This is where the combination of extreme fuels, strongest winds,
and lowest rhs are expected... namely the strongest winds.

* Minimum humidities: single digits to low teens

* timing: winds will begin to increase Saturday morning around
sunrise, increasing and becoming gusty by early afternoon. A
dramatic wind shift from westerly to easterly will occur
sometime after roughly 1900lt.

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.
