LATE MORNING INTO THE AFTERNOON. IN ADDITION...THE AIRMASS ACROSS
THE STATE WILL BE RELATIVELY DRY WITH RELATIVE HUMIDITY VALUES
DROPPING INTO THE 20S BY EARLY AFTERNOON. THE COMBINATION OF THE
WINDS AND LOW RELATIVE HUMIDITY WILL PRODUCE AN ELEVATED FIRE

THIS MORNING INTO THE LATE AFTERNOON HOURS. WINDS WILL DIE OFF
QUICKLY EARLY THIS EVENING WITH RAPIDLY IMPROVING FIRE
CONDITIONS.
