A Red Flag Warning is in effect for all counties in West Central and Southwest Florida except Levy from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. today. A combination of strong and gusty winds and long durations of humidity values less than 35 percent and dry vegetation will contribute to extreme fire behavior across the region today. Any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly and outdoor burning is not recommended today.
