Northborough's fire chief David Durgin said that a red flag warning has been issued for much of the area.
According to the National Weather Service, this "very warm and generally dry airmass promotes an elevated fire risk today." With dry conditions and gusty winds around 25 miles per hour, this warning has been issued for the Central Middlesex area through 8 p.m. on Monday.
Temperatures range from the upper 80s to the lower 90s and the lowest humidity is anticipated to occur around midday, according to NWS.
"Dry weather and gusty winds will result in critical fire weather conditions," reads the NWS website. "A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now, or will shortly. A combination of strong winds and low relative humidity will create an elevated fire spread potential."
