Solano County under red-flag fire warning

By August 13, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A slight chance of thunderstorm prompted the National Weather Service on Monday to declare a red flag warning for Solano County and adjacent counties lasting until 11 a.m. Tuesday.

A low pressure system off the coast is expected to move inland into Tuesday. That type of pattern has historically brought widespread lightning to Northern California, the warning said. There is a chance of fires from lightning strikes and of gusty and erratic winds up to 40 mph that could cause fires to grow.

The National Weather Service put the chance of thunderstorms in Fairfield at 20 percent for Monday night.
