Outdoor Burn Warning Issued By NWS for Today

The National Weather Service has issued a special statement indicating an increased fire danger for this afternoon. Continued dry conditions will prevail today, forecasters said, and that will lead to an increased risk of dangerous fire growth. Very low fuel moisture, relative humidity between 30%-40%, and gusty southwest winds around 20mph make for favorable conditions which allow fires to develop easily and spread rapidly. Refer to local burn permitting authorities for further guidance regarding outdoor burning today.
