BOSTON = The National Weather Service out of Boston/Norton has issued a red flag warning for Saturday, March 13 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and for Sunday, March 14 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

A Red Flag Warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now or will shortly.

Any fires that start may spread rapidly and become difficult to extinguish.

The forecast calls for strong winds, low relative humidity, and dry vegetation, which will result in elevated fire danger.
