With a ban on all outdoor burning already in place Bernalillo County is warning dry conditions, stiff winds and warm temperatures will create conditions ripe for wildfires this weekend.
The National Weather Service has issued a Red Flag Warning today from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. with similar conditions expected on Sunday.
The warning targets the middle Rio Grande valley and the Sandia and Manzano mountains.
County commissioners voted early in the week to ban all fires including the use of charcoal grills.
