Flagstaff on Sunday recorded its second consecutive day of record high temperatures, followed by a day of critical fire weather conditions Monday.

The National Weather Service in Bellemont reported that the high at Flagstaff Pulliam Airport Sunday was 90 degrees, breaking the record of 88 set back in 1902.

On Saturday, the high was 91, breaking the record of 90.

Other record highs on Sunday included 91 at Fort Valley, 104 in Page, 98 at Petrified Forest and 102 in Winslow.

Monday saw a slightly lower high temperature in Flagstaff of 85 degrees. But stiff afternoon winds and low humidity combined to produce a Red Flag Warning by the Weather Service for most of northwestern and north-central Arizona.

Winds will subside today and Wednesday, then pick back up on Thursday, when another Red Flag Warning day is possible, according to the Weather Service.
