WINDS WILL INCREASE OUT OF THE SOUTH TODAY AS HIGH PRESSURE

BUT AGAIN MOST OF THE AREA WILL REMAIN DRY.

TEMPERATURES OVER THE NEXT FEW DAYS WILL SEE A SLOW AND STEADY
INCREASE. AT THE SAME TIME...LOW LEVEL HUMIDITY WILL INCREASE IN

...LOW FIRE DANGER...

THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER INDEX WILL REACH THE LOW CATEGORY
THIS AFTERNOON. FAVORABLE WEATHER CONDITIONS OR A HIGH MOISTURE
CONTENT OF GRASSES...AND OTHER DRY ORGANIC MATERIAL ON THE
GROUND...INDICATE THAT THE PROBABILITY OF A FIRE OCCURRENCE IS
LOW. OUTDOOR BURNING UNDER THESE CONDITIONS CAN USUALLY BE
PERFORMED WITH REASONABLE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS.

THE OUTLOOK FOR FRIDAY AFTERNOON...THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER INDEX
WILL REACH THE LOW CATEGORY.
