Red Flag Warning in effect for Round Rock
The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning for Williamson County for Wednesday, Aug. 9, from noon to 9 p.m. and for Thursday, Aug. 10, from noon to 11 p.m. This warning was issued due to high winds and low relative humidity. Red Flag Warnings are likely each afternoon over the next week.
A Red Flag Warning means warm temperatures, very low humidities, and stronger winds are expected to combine to produce an increased risk of fire danger, and any fires that develop can spread rapidly. Any outdoor activity that could produce flames or sparks is discouraged.
Residents are asked to keep in mind the following tips:
– Properly dispose of cigarettes and matches
– Do not park on dry grass
– Avoid outdoor burning
Williamson County is currently under a burn ban.
