The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning for high fire danger from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today.

The warning covers North and Central Georgia, where winds are expected to gust up to 25 mph.

The "red flag" warning covers all of Central Georgia's counties. The warning says people should take care with outdoor fires and contact local authorities before burning.

13WMAZ meteorologist David Ernst says a measuring station at the Middle Georgia Regional Airport has gotten 7.92 inches of rain this year. That's more than 6 inches below normal and more than 4 inches less than last year.

He said Central Georgia has seen sustained wind speeds of 10 to 15 mph.

Forecasters say humidity will be low, helping to create potentially dangerous fire conditions.
