    JMP PSA - Park closed 9/23/2019 (now) - 9/25 (5am)

    There's a red flag warning for the east bay hills. OFD came by and kicked everyone out of the park at 5PM tonight. It will likely be closed until Wednesday morning.

    I'm guessing the winds are what worry them, as the forecast for later Wednesday is 92 in Oakland. Still gonna be hot.

    A few years ago I rode in JMP when it was 100 deg in Oakland but dead calm. It was a great day on the trails despite the heat. I didn't see a soul out there and there were even a bunch of horse trailers camped out by the horse arena.

    NWS red flag warning extended to 7PM tonight.

    The gusty winds only just showed up in the hills in the last two hours.

    I think you got it wrong, the "Heat advisory" warning is till 7pm.
    The red flag finished at 11am

    This is what I based it on:

    It sure seems like more worrisome conditions out there now than the last couple of days. It is hot *and* windy here near the park.

    There were some 'no parking' signs near the top of big trees early monday morning. said the spots were held for paramount pictures trucks. maybe the park was closed because the film crew held it with permits? ....or the fire thing

    Did a quick 3 loops up there this morning. Park is open. Talked to the film crew camped out at the top of Big Trees, and they said they were filming for the Netflix show, 13 Reasons Why. In fact, I was walking the doggie in the park yesterday evening, and they had all of their lights set up and were filming. They're done today. Pretty cool.
