A red flag warning will be in effect for parts of eastern Washington and Oregon on Thursday from noon to 10 p.m., according to the National Weather Service.
That means fire danger is expected to be extremely high across the area due to warm temperatures, low humidity and strong winds.
On Thursday, temperatures are expected to be in the 90s with winds around 15 to 25 miles per hour and 15 to 20% humidity.
Fires that develop will likely spread quickly. Outdoor burning is not recommended.
