...Elevated Fire Weather Potential Tomorrow...

With an overall lack of rainfall across western Massachusetts and
northwest Connecticut, dry conditions persist. South to southwest
winds will gust to around 25 miles per hour on Thursday. These
winds will combine with relatively warm temperatures in the lower
70s within a dry airmass to yield low relative humidity near 35

This will lead to elevated fire weather conditions through the
daylight hours on Thursday.
