The Shenandoah Valley is under a red flag warning from the National Weather Service, and is facing an enhanced fire threat this afternoon (4/3/2019).

A dry cold front will move across an area that includes Clarke, Frederick, Warren, Shenandoah, Page, and Rappahannock counties this afternoon, among others. This front will promote warm, very dry, and breezy conditions. West-Northwest winds will strengthen between 15 to 20 mph with gusts ranging from 25 to 30 mph, and humidities will drop into the 20 to 25 percent range. Any fires that develop during this time have the potential to spread rapidly. The National Weather Service and local law enforcement is warning that, while winds will diminish rapidly with sunset this evening, conditions will remain dry tonight with poor moisture recovery.
