...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 THURSDAY AFTERNOON...THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER
INDEX WILL REACH THE LOW CATEGORY.
