— The red flag fire warning for the Tri-Cities has been extended until 9 p.m. Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

Breezes of 11 to 13 mph Monday afternoon and relative humidity as low as 8 percent are expected to create conditions that could allow any wildfire to spread quickly.

The high temperature could reach 100 degrees in the Tri-Cities Monday afternoon.

Tuesday and Wednesday also will be hot with temperatures near 100 degrees, before temperatures cool through the rest of the week.
