Very dry conditions and a light wind are elevating the potential for brush fires in the region once again Tuesday.

The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning that is in effect from noon until 8 p.m. Tuesday for the entire tristate area.

Humidity values of around 25 percent, combined with winds of 10 to 20 miles per hour with gusts of 25 mph have led to the Weather Service advisory.

A “red flag,” is issued when three criteria are met: relative humidity less than or equal to 25 percent; winds of 20 mph or more; and fuels such as branches and twigs that are dry.

Under these conditions, fire officials strongly advise against deliberate outdoor burning and the exercise of caution against accidental fires.

After a cloudy start, skies will brighten Tuesday, Presidential Primary Day in New York, with a high reaching the upper 60s.

The overnight low will be around 40.

Wednesday will be a sunny day with a high in the low 60s.
