PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Although many people might be happy to see winter snow and slush go away, the dry weather brings about a new problem: fire.

The National Weather Service has issued a red flag warning until 9 p.m. due to wind and “low relative humidity for fire weather zones.”

Our region is also expected to get winds between 15 and 20 miles per hour – with additional gusts of up to 30 miles per hour.

The NWS cautions that if any fired occur, they could spread rapidly.

Additionally, officials warn against burning outside.
