The National Weather Service has issued Red Flag Warnings for large portions of Ohio lasting from Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday evening. Humidity levels across the region are expected to drop, and wind gusts could pick up anywhere between 20-25 mph. The warnings are issued because the combination of heat and wind are ideal conditions for a fire to start and spread rapidly.
