A “Red Flag Warning” has been issued by the National Weather Service for the mountain communities. The warning will be in effect from 3 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10 through 6 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 11. Winds will develop in the San Bernardino Mountains around midnight, reaching 20 to 35 mph with gusts up to 50 mph. The Cajon pass will likely see gusts up to 70 mph. Blustery conditions and low humidity will create a dangerously dry environment. These predictions have prompted Southern California Edison to issue power outage alerts across the mountain communities.
