A red flag warning for abundant lightning means that thunderstorms

result in increased fire starts. Erratic gusty winds in thunderstorms
will likely result in rapid fire growth. A combination of
abundant lightning, dry fuels, low relative humidity and erratic
outflow winds can contribute to extreme fire behavior.
