The National Weather Service declared a "Red Flag" wind warning for this afternoon through Tuesday afternoon, but that isn't what had everybody talking.
The weather service also called for snow on Friday and Friday evening, with accumulations of up to two inches. The weather service forecast a "slight chance" of snow for Saturday as the last of a cold front moves over the mountains.
The wind warning will average 15 to 25 miles an hour with gusts up to miles an hur. Humidity will remain very low, in the 8-to-15 percent range, creating "critical" fire weather conditions, particularly this afternoon (Monday).
