If you’re headed up to Tahoe don’t expect to do any BBQ. 70 mile an hour winds out of the west over the mountain tops could create some pretty squirrely breezes down to or close to lake level. Forest Service officials say there is a Red Flag Warning at the lake for enormously dangerous fire conditions….mainly between 1pm and 8pm this afternoon and evening. No outdoor fires are permitted – even in a fire pit. Sparks drift prominently up from campfires and into the trees where they can set off a conflagration in minutes.
Picnicing with cold cuts will save Lake Tahoe.
