A Red Flag Warning has been issued for much of Solano County through this evening.

The warning covers all of Solano County except for Vallejo, Benicia and rural parts of the county around those two cities.

Meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Sacramento say a combination of gusty wind, low humidity and warm weather has increased the possibility of new fires.

Wind could gust as high as 30 miles per hour in some parts of the Sacramento valley, forecasters said.

The warning period lasts until Tuesday at 8 p.m.
