A red flag warning will be in effect today from noon to 8 p.m. in Middletown and most of Rhode Island.

The National Weather Service reports that dry weather and gusty winds—10 to 20 miles per hour, with gusts up to 30 miles per hours—will result in critical fire weather conditions.

"A mild and generally dry air mass continues to promote favorable conditions for fire spread," the NWS website states.
