4-23-14

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Forecasters have issued a red flag warning and fire weather watch for most of New Jersey.

The warning is in effect from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. Wednesday and the watch is posted during the same time period on Thursday.

Forecasters say low humidity and strong winds will combine to allow the spread of any brush fires that develop.

Residents are advised to properly dispose of any smoking materials.
