SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – A Red Flag Warning issued for parts of the Bay Area has been extended through Monday morning as more thunderstorms are expected to soak the region amid a continuing heatwave.
The Red Flag Warning was first issued by the National Weather Service Saturday due to storms that began to develop in the South Bay and Santa Cruz areas.
It was originally set to expire Sunday at 11 a.m.
With the Red Flag Warning comes an increased risk of wildfires that may start near where dry lightning starts.
This means fires have the potential to spread quickly, especially with gusty winds onshore.
People are advised to take extra precautions when outdoors today.
