A swath of interior Humboldt County, and surrounding counties, is under a red flag warning today from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m., the Eureka office of the National Weather Service reports.

The culprit is an upper level disturbance that will move through the region and mix with "monsoon moisture and an unstable atmosphere," the NWS reports.

"Thunderstorms producing abundant lightning across dry fuels are expected," a NWS post states, "resulting in an increased threat for fire starts."
