The National Weather Center is warning of extreme fire danger Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Lightning storms, dry conditions and winds are expected to combine Tuesday evening and Wednesday, priming Eastern Washington and North Idaho for wildfires.

Tuesday and Wednesday humidity is expected to be low, and winds are predicted to hover between 10 and 20 miles per hour, with gusts between 25 to 35 miles per an hour.

The National Weather Service is urging community members to follow burn restrictions, most of the state is under a burn ban, and be cautious with things that could start fires, like vehicles or grills.
